Hey, Wasn’t Joe Biden Supposed to be Obama’s Foreign Policy Expert?

When President Barack Hussein Obama picked Joe Biden to be his number two man, we were all told that it was because good ol’ Joe was the U.S. Senate’s “expert” on foreign policy. He was supposed to act as Obama’s right hand man in an area that Obama had no experience whatsoever. So, with disaster after disaster in foreign policy, it behooves us to ask, where is Joe Biden?

Of course, we all know that Biden has been wrong on every stance he’s ever taken on foreign policy both as a Senator and as Vice President. He has been so consistently wrong that even a member of Obama’s own administration has said Biden is an utter failure on reading foreign policy.

In his recent book, former Secretary of Defense Robert Gates said that Biden has been wrong about “nearly every major foreign policy and national security issue over the past four decades.”

It was a stark description that even the left-leaning PolitiFact said was “mostly true.”

The 15 Most Stupid Things Liberals Said in 2013

Well, we are coming to the end of the year and that usually brings us to lists of things that happened during the year. To get a jump on that trend, I give you the top 15 most stupid things said by Democrats and liberals in the year 2013.

Certainly what should appear on a “top” list of anything is subjective and we are certain we will miss something really, really stupid that some halfwitted, demagoguing Democrat said sometime during the year, but we’ve come up with fifteen real whoppers, here.

Naturally we just had to use a photo of the king of Democrat stupidity, Vice President Joe Biden, to adorn our list. Biden is a man who at a really once asked Missouri State Senator Chuck Graham “stand up” and be recognized. Chuck Graham is confined to a wheel chair.

***Also see The Dumbest Criminals of 2013***

Topping the list is most certainly what is now the most famous presidential lie in American history, “If you like your plan, you can keep it.” This line of BS was issued over and over again–not just in 2013 but since 2008–by none other than President Obama himself. It has to rank as the most stupid thing any Democrat has said for years. But Obama isn’t the only leftist running about saying stupid things. So, starting with number fifteen and going to number one, here is our list.

Number 15:

“You know what I heard… that it’s not black on black crime that’s killing kids in Chicago, it’s actually cops shooting those kids.”

This load of horse hockey was uttered by Chicago Democrat Monique Davis.

Chicago is closing in on some 400 murders for 2013 of which 80 percent are black. One would think that the national news would be aghast if the Chicago police had shot over 350 blacks in the Windy City! Of course, Rep. Davis is full of crap and is just pushing more racebaiting nonsense.

Vice Pres. Biden’s Niece Arrested For Striking Police Officer

September 19, 2013 | Filed Under Crime, Democrats/Leftists, Joe Biden, Liberals, President, Progressives, Warner Todd Huston | Comments Off

-By Warner Todd Huston

On Tuesday, police arrested Vice President Joe Biden’s niece, Caroline Biden, for striking a police officer when they were called to her Tribeca, New York apartment.

Police say that Biden interfered with police as they tried to break up a fight between her and her roommate. Police say she lunged at one officer and struck at another during the altercation.

Amusingly, as she was arrested, police strapped her to a wheelchair and covered her with a bed sheet to take her to the paddy wagon so that reporters couldn’t see her.

Gee, do you think the cops would have been so thoughtful about a regular person, one not in the family of a high powered politician?

I guess Caroline Biden didn’t listen to the advice of her illustrious Vice Gaffer in Chief when he told everyone they should be using shotguns when confronted by anyone, eh?

Of course the VP has refused to make a statement. No surprise there, eh?

VP Biden Still Lobbying for Gun Control

-By Warner Todd Huston

Vice President Joe Biden is again plying the phones calling his former colleagues on Capitol Hill bending ears over the President’s gun control ideas. His calls are coming on a “near-daily basis” as Obama mounts another push for gun control.

Biden has held private meetings with Republican Senators such as John McCain (Ariz.), Lindsey Graham (S.C.) and, Johnny Isakson (Ga.), and will be haunting the offices of Capitol Hill in the days ahead.

It appears that President Obama is relying on Biden to leverage the relationships he had built when he was a long-serving Senator from Delaware to cajole Congress into acquiescing to new gun control laws.

“President Obama is the strategist and Vice President Biden is the tactician,” Democratic consultant Chris Kofinis told The Hill. “I think the president is laying out the frame, the message, the vision about where we need to go and why. The vice president understands how to make that happen. You have two interlocking pieces that work very well together.”

Republicans, however, scoff at the idea that Biden is an effective negotiator.

VP Biden Apologizes for Deleting Student Reporter’s Photos

The office of the Vice President issued an apology to a University of Maryland student for staffers having forcefully deleted photographs the young man took of Biden at a public event.

Jeremy Barr, a student reporter for University of Maryland’s Capital News Service, attended Biden’s announcement of another new domestic violence initiative but sat in a section meant for the general audience, not reporters. The reporter was seen taking photos of the Vice President speaking from the podium. After the speech, he was confronted by a Biden staffer who demanded that he delete the photos and stood by making sure he did so.

In short order, Lucy Dalglish, dean of the University of Maryland’s journalism school, filed a formal complaint with Biden’s office.

Moderator Jim Leher on Pres. Debate: ‘I Never Read Tweets’

Obama shocked the country with his horrible debate performance last October. After it was all over many of his supporters blamed debate moderator Jim Leher of PBS for the debacle–especially on Twitter. But Leher remained blissfully ignorant of all the criticism because he refuses to bother with Twitter.

The criticism of Leher’s debate moderation was pretty stiff on Twitter and mostly from Obama’s supporters. But Politico reports that Leher says he never saw any of it.

“I never read any of them, never got a report on them, didn’t want to know anything about them,” Leher said as he sat on Kalb Report panel at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C. on Monday night.

VP Biden: Mental Health Checks Could Have Stopped Vir. Tech Shooting

-By Warner Todd Huston

After a discussion on gun control at an event in Richmond, Virginia, Vice President Joe Biden claimed that better mental health checks could have stopped the shooting on the Virginia Tech campus in 2007.

Biden said that he and those he consulted during the recent gun banning commission he chaired which was completed in mid January had reached a “pretty broad consensus” of policy recommendations that would include “mental capacity” to determine who would be allowed to purchase guns in the future.

“One of the problems that was pointed out here was that there was an adjudication of the young man that committed the crime at Virginia Tech, and yet he was able to go out and purchase two weapons,” the Vice President said.

In 2007 Seung-Hui Cho, a student at the university, killed 32 at the Blacksburg, VA campus. Cho used two handguns that he had purchased legally. The killer, though, had a history of mental health issues that apparently didn’t come up in his background checks when he purchased the weapons.

In the next leg of President Obama’s perpetual campaign, he and Vice President Biden plan to hit the road and tour the country pushing their new gun ban ideas as the political season heats up.

Just ahead of inauguration day, VP Biden finished chairing his special Commission on Gun Violence and now he plans to appear in Richmond, Virginia before an organized anti-gun audience to campaign for his “gun violence” recommendations.

Biden joined Virginia’s Democrat Senator Tim Kane at the first campaign-style event on Friday, January 25. Both rallied to push Obama’s anti-gun message.

White House spokesman Jay Carney told the media on Wednesday that the President would soon begin touring the country pushing his policy recommendations, but no schedule of events was released.

Biden Readies for 2016 Run

January 24, 2013 | Filed Under Democrats/Leftists, Elections, Ethics, Government, Joe Biden, Liberals, President, Warner Todd Huston | Comments Off

-By Warner Todd Huston

Joe Biden has never come anywhere close to the Democrat nomination for President of the United States. But, as a sitting Vice President, he thinks he has the inside track for the 2016 nomination and he’s already lining up his ducks to make that happen.

As a Senator, Biden tried running for the Democrat nomination two other times–1988 and 2008–and made noises about running during nearly every other election cycle in between. Each time he was, shall we say, a dark horse candidate, one least expected to get far in the hunt. He easily realized those low odds, too.

But now that he is the Vice President Biden assumes he could be next. After all, there is always an expectation that a sitting Vice President should be the next man in line after his president finishes his time in office. Pursuant to that, Joe has already begun making arrangements for 2016.

Did VP Biden Lie About Hearing 2006 Gun Shots?

January 22, 2013 | Filed Under 2nd Amendment, Anti-Americanism, Constitution, Democrats/Leftists, Ethics, Government, Gun Control, Guns, Joe Biden, Journalism, Liberals, Media, Media Bias, Progressives, Regulation, Warner Todd Huston | Comments Off

-By Warner Todd Huston

Last week as Vice President Joe Biden talked publicly about his efforts to assist President Obama with his various gun-banning schemes, he made a startling new claim. He said that while golfing in Pennsylvania in 2006 he personally heard the gunfire from a mass shooting being committed at a nearby school. But did he really? Facts seem to run contrary to Biden’s late claim.

The shooting Biden was referring to occurred at an Amish schoolhouse in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania on October 2, 2006. During the crime, a gunman entered the schoolhouse, killed five children and wounded five others.

Employing his favorite, most overused word–literally–Biden regaled an audience last week about his personal connection to the shooting calling it “pure coincidence.”

On January 17, the Washington Times reported that Biden made this revelation at a meeting of the U.S. Council of Mayors.

“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,” Biden claimed. “We didn’t know… we thought they were hunters.”

Biden continued with the tall tale saying, “As I got back to the clubhouse of this outing and saw helicopters, it was a shooting that had just taken place in a small Amish… school just outside of Lancaster, Pennsylvania. So it’s not just big cities or well-to-do suburbs. It can happen anywhere.”

But is any of this true? Facts seem to cast doubt on the Vice President’s claims.

Firstly, Biden has never mentioned this incident before. This complete lack of his ever mentioning this close connection to the Amish schoolhouse shooting seems out of character. If he was that close to the shooting and with as much as Joe likes to make everything about Joe, it’s hard to believe he would never have mentioned this story before now.

That aside, there’s the physical realities involved in Biden’s claims.

In a follow up report, the Washington Times found that there aren’t any golf courses close enough to the Amish school for golfers to have heard gunshots from so far away.

But a search of maps of the area in Lancaster County, Pa., shows the nearest golf course to the site of the shooting, Moccasin Run Golf Club, is about five miles away. 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.

At ten miles distant, the only other golf course is even farther away. Both courses are certainly too far away for golfers to have heard gunshots that were fired inside a school building.

Interestingly, a look through last week’s news coverage finds little notice of Biden’s sudden claims conveniently made just as he’s pushing new gun control schemes. One wonders why Joe Biden so often gets away with these tall tales? In light of how VPs Quayle and Cheney were treated by the media, why won’t Old Media operatives ever call Joe Biden on his often times impossible claims?

VP Gaffemaster: ‘No Silver Bullet’ to Stop Gun Violence

This month’s busy work for Vice President “Sheriff” Joe Biden is his great gun control task force assigned him by his boss, Barack. Now that it is close to wrapping up, Biden has told us a bit about his progress and in his gaffetastic way he’s told us that there is “no silver bullet” to any gun-grabbing solutions.

After he met with the National Rifle Association, “Sheriff” Joe bellied up to the closest microphone and told his constituents in the press that “We know that there is no silver bullet” to stop gun violence.

Biden claimed that his meetings with the NRA was “productive,” though he did not elaborate upon what that meant.

For its part, the NRA thought that Biden and his gun control crew didn’t really listen to a thing they said. The NRA told the Old Media establishment that it was “disappointed with how little this meeting had to do with keeping our children safe and how much it had to do with an agenda to attack the Second Amendment.”

What Fiscal Cliff? VP Biden, Gov’t Workers Getting Raises

Imagine you are working for a company that is going bankrupt, but everyone you work with and your bosses are getting pay raises. Seem absurd? Not if you work for the failing federal government because President Obama has happily decreed that Vice President Biden, members of Congress and most federal workers are getting raises for 2013.

As the U.S. government is losing its luster on the bond market and as the fiscal cliff looms, President Obama issued an executive order to give everyone raises.

Obama has generously bestowed a $6,379 per year raise on Sheriff Joe, he’s given members of the House a $900 increase, and he’s doled out a .5 percent pay increase to federal workers. (See a full listing of pay raises for Congressional offices at The Weekly Standard)

Biden For President in 2016… Or Maybe County Council?

November 11, 2012 | Filed Under Democrats/Leftists, Elections, Ethics, Government, Joe Biden, Liberals, President, Progressives, Warner Todd Huston | Comments Off

-By Warner Todd Huston

Apparently Joe Biden can’t make up his mind about what to do after his term as the 47th Vice President of the United States of America is over. He’s either going to run for President (again for the third time) or he’s going to run for a spot on the county council in New Castle, Delaware.

Firstly, before the late election ended, Biden hinted that he was considering a third run for President in 2016. He ran for the Democrat nomination in 1988 and 2008, losing badly both times.

But after the election the VP backtracked a bit and joked that he’d more likely run for New Castle County Council. On the other hand, he also said that he’d make such decisions in 2016 after he’s helped Barack make a “success” out of his second term.

On Nov. 8, Biden told the Wilmington News-Journal that, “There’s plenty of time to think about 2016.”

Yale University Economic Model Gives Election to Romney

-By Warner Todd Huston

Based on his economic election model, Yale University economist Ray Fair predicts that GOP nominee Mitt Romney will pull out a sparse victory in November.

Fair’s model successfully predicts the winners of every election but two since 1916. The two, the 1960 election of John Kennedy and the 1992 election of Bill Clinton, are the only ones his economics-based electoral prediction model gets wrong.

Fair uses several economic indicators in his model to determine winners. Those factors include the per capita growth rate of the gross domestic product, inflation, and the number of quarters that the GDP grew more than 3.2% during the incumbent’s term.

But even Fair’s model predicts a race that is within his margin of error. Obama could still pull this out despite an economy that argues against his re-election.

Biden’s Custard Pie Soured By Non-Supporter in Ohio

As “Sheriff” Joe Biden stopped by Schmucker’s Restaurant in Toledo, Ohio to have a nice slice of custard pie, his sweet snack was soured by a disgruntled voter who told him to enjoy being VP while it lasted because the end is near, at least the voter hoped so, anyway.

Joe bellied up to the counter to order his pie and sat down next to a male voter who wasn’t so happy with the Obama administration. According to Politico’s Donovan Slack, the voter opened his conversation telling Joe he was “a good guy” but went on to tell him he hoped Joe would lose his bid for re-election.

“Before that, I told him to enjoy his last couple of months,” the man, who declined to give his name, said. “Just because you’re a good guy doesn’t mean you’re a good vice president.”

Slack noted that Biden sensibly took his pie to another table after the encounter with the soured voter.

Apparently, former ABC News reporter Carol Simpson is a disgruntled debate moderator. In an interview conducted after the recent 2012 debate, Simpson claimed that she was relegated to being the “Oprah” of moderators. Further, she asserted that women are discriminated against as debate moderators. She was even unhappy that they made her wear high-heeled shoes when she moderated the 1992 debates.

In the interview conducted by Chicago Magazine, Simpson rated Candy Crowley’s performance and talked of her own night decades ago as a debate moderator.

Unsurprisingly, Simpson thought Crowley did a “fabulous job.” Amusingly, she almost seemed to say that maybe Crowley was taking her safety into her own hands because Romney and Obama might have “come to blows” on that stage.

Vice President Joe Biden has done it again, unleashed an outright lie on the campaign trail. This time Joe told an audience at the University of Wisconsin-LaCrosse that the abortion provider Planned Parenthood was prevented by law to perform abortions. And yet, Planned Parenthood itself has claimed it committed 985,731 abortions in just the last three years alone.

In front of that crowd, Biden said, “And now these guys pledge that they are going to defund Planned Parenthood, which under law cannot perform any abortion” The fact is, though, Biden simply lied (again).

There is no law at all that prevents Planned Parenthood from committing abortions whenever and whereever it likes.

Now, there is a law that prevents PP from using any of the 66 million dollars a year in federal tax money that Democrat politicians hand over to it, granted. The law states that the federal subsidies cannot be used for abortions.

Washington Post reporter Dan Zak saw a different vice presidential debate than nearly everyone else in the Old Media establishment. Zak saw the debate where Joe Biden was brilliant, Martha Raddatz was fair, and Paul Ryan was like “the perp-of-the-week” on an episode of TVs Law and Order: SVU. That is exactly what he said on Twitter as he watched the debates.

Zak must have thought he was brilliant with this Twitter observation: “35 min in, Biden is Det. Olivia Benson and Ryan is the perp-of-the-week. #SpecialVeepsUnit,” he tweeted.

If you aren’t familiar with the TV show, each week it features yet another sex criminal “perp” that has attacked a little child, raped a woman, or murdered someone. The show is one long cavalcade of sickos, weirdos, and creeps chased by cops that imagine they are above the law employing the sort of shoddy police work that would lead them to be either fired or put in prison themselves.

That wasn’t all Zak had to say about GOP VP nominee Paul Ryan. He also characterized him as a child, Tweeting, “My #VPdebate review coming soon: ‘A man debated a boy Thursday night on national television, and both were ultimately schooled by a woman.’”

Undecideds Not Budged By Smirking Joe Biden’s Debate Performance

Joe Biden did not help team Obama tonight, folks.

I am seeing a few conservatives wringing their hands that Paul Ryan “missed opportunities.” Maybe so, but since he was interrupted a full 83 times (yes it has been counted) it’s no wonder that he didn’t get all his valid points in.

With smirking Joe Biden and jolting Martha Raddatz both teaming up to interrupt every single reply Ryan tried to give, it is certain that his points got lost in some instances.

In fact, Joe was such a jerk that it is sure he only appealed to the radical, left-wing base that Obama has been slowly losing this month. Apparently Joe’s job was to shore up the base and not bother with undecideds. This is a bad sign for team Obama. If he is still trying to appeal to the base with only weeks to go before election day… well, let’s just say it’s a bad, bad sign.

But the final assessment of the VP debate will be that Ryan won on points. He seemed knowledgeable, even tempered, and nice. Biden will be loved by his base for being an asshole with his smirking, arm waving, interrupting, sputtering, scoffing, and laughing (Al Gore in 2000, anyone?) but independents, moderates and undecided voters will wonder why Biden was such an asshole.

All in all, Ryan did fine and didn’t hurt himself and Biden did NOT help team Obama with undecideds.

Here is one undecided from CNN…

And polls on CNN after the night was said and done showed Ryan with a slight lead in all categories with CNN’s viewers. Within the margin of error, often, but it still shows that Biden did not help Obama with the very group that he needs to win.

Media Blackout: GAO Says Obama’s Welfare Waivers Illegal

On Sept. 4, the Government Accountability Office (GAO) made a startling assertion saying that Obama circumvented the law when he summarily waived the work requirements in the welfare law. Perhaps not as shocking, to date, few news outlets seem interested in the story.

In its Sept. 4 letter, the GAO found that Health and Human Services (HHS) should have formally submitted a letter of its intent to make the changes to Congress and the Comptroller General before any waivers can be legally issued.

The letter also said that the GAO had not determined if HHS had the legal right to even make such waivers available. The GAO is basically saying that the Obama administration is breaking the law with its waivers.

In an otherwise interesting piece on the way conservatives set the agenda for media coverage of the Democrat convention and its removal of God and Jerusalem from the Party platform, Slate committed the all too common error of lazy attribution.

In a Sept. 7 piece, Slate noted how conservatives had basically set the agenda for the coverage of the Democrat convention all day on Tuesday and Wednesday, Sept. 4 and 5. This was when it was realized that the Democrats had eliminated both God and Jerusalem being the rightful capital of Israel from their platform.

The Slate piece rightfully notes that Breitbart’s Jeff Dunetz was a source for breaking the news. But Slate gets the site wrong in its attribution.

Obama Thinks ‘Made In The USA’ Is ‘Three Words’

September 9, 2012 | Filed Under Barack Obama, Democrats/Leftists, Elections, Government, Joe Biden, Liberals, Progressives, Warner Todd Huston | Comments Off

Now for a Sunday night palate cleanser…

I guess after Obama gets done touring our “57 states,” he’s going to go back to grade school in Indonesia to learn to count.

Of course, he’s just like his Vice President, Joey “The Clown” Biden…


DNC’s Joe Biden Video Features Joe Standing With a Union Criminal

The Democrat National Committee wanted to make a nice heartwarming video telling America and convention goers how wonderful ol’ “Sheriff Joe” Biden is. But, oops, one of the still photos included in the retrospective shows Biden standing chummy with a union member that was arrested for pick pocketing in 2009.

The video, titled, Vice President Joe Biden’s Story, is filled with heartwarming photos of good ol’ Joe with old folks, school kids, and American workers. But one worker in particular would have been best left out of the bio-video.

At about 5:17 into the video you’ll see a still photo of Service Employees International Union member Marshall Clemons and Vice President, Biden. In that photo you see good ol’ Joe standing next to Clemons and his wife and son. All smiles there, with Joe’s arms warmly embracing the family.

It’s a nice family photo showing how personable Joe is. But who is this Marshall Clemons?

As it happens, Joe Biden did a little union-touting video with Mr. Clemons back in 2007. The film was called Walk a day in my shoes: Joe Biden/Marshall Clemons and was made in cooperation with the SEIU.

That film, too, was supposed to be a heartwarming tale of good ol’ Joe palling around with the common worker.

But I guess Joe didn’t help Mr. Clemons make enough money at the SEIU because not long after they appeared together in the union-selling video, Clemons was arrested for stealing money out of women’s purses at the Iowa State Capital.

This is a case of a union member reaching into people’s pockets a bit more directly than they usually do. In 2009 an Iowa lobbyist caught Clemons reaching into and stealing wallets from the unattended bags of other lobbyists who were busy plying lawmakers at the state capital. The lobbyist alerted the Iowa state police and when they tracked Clemons down they witnessed him trying to ditch a second stolen wallet in a public bathroom. Clemons was charged with two counts of fifth degree theft.

This is the guy that the DNC thought was a good idea to show Vice President Biden paling around with? Does “Sheriff Joe” have a habit of hanging around pickpockets!

Ad Wars: Obama’s ‘Republican’ Woman, Registered as Dem. for Last 6 Years

August 27, 2012 | Filed Under Anti-Americanism, Barack Obama, Democrats/Leftists, Elections, Ethics, GOP, Government, Joe Biden, Liberals, President, Warner Todd Huston | Comments Off

-By Warner Todd Huston

One of Barack Obama’s recent ads for his re-election campaign is supposed to feature Republican women who have turned away from the GOP to support Obama/Biden. But, as it turns out, one of the women in the ad is not so “Republican” as she’s presented, having been a registered Democrat for the last 6 years — several years longer than Obama has been president.

“People like me and my family have realized that the Republican Party once was inline with our views, but are no longer,” Ciano says in the ad.

But Maria Ciano of Colorado has been a registered Democrat since October of 2006 according to her voting records.
