Joe Biden, the scene was the 1988 election when the democrats were lining up to see who would be the nominee to take on the republicans. We are all too familiar with Joe Biden’s plagiarism scandal, where he infamously stole a speech from a Labor Party member and from Bobby Kennedy. The same campaign where he also lied about his academic record. So Joe Biden’s dishonesty doesn’t come off as a shock to the people who have seen his dishonesty for years before his nomination. Joe Biden’s Lying is a Real Problem.
Joe Biden’s lying seems to get just get worse and worse though, not even touching on his potential cognitive decline, Joe Biden’s dishonesty will be a real issue for Americans if he is to be elected. Joe Biden not only lies about the little things, such as his story talking about “a bad dude named Cornpop” who Joe had to once fiercely take down with a chain in a fight when he was a lifeguard, but Joe also lies about the big things. Joe recently came out and lied about the number of soldiers who have died of COVID-19, one can assume this was in some effort to add another smear related to the false accusations of President Donald Trump’s language about veterans. Joe said 6,114 soldiers died from Coronavirus when in reality 7 died.
If 2020 election is to be a contest of characters, it is only appropriate that Joe Biden’s history of fabrication and deceit – often intended to bolster his intellectual credentials – also be fair game.

As the school’s campus newspaper reported in 2017, the former Vice President’s appointment initially led some students and faculty to believe he was going to be working as an instructor but Biden spokesperson Kate Bedingfield (who currently serves in a senior role on his campaign) soon confirmed that he would “not,” in fact, “be teaching classes” after all. Last year, the Philadelphia Inquirer reported that Biden was paid more for the professorship than he’d made as vice president — $371,159 in 2017 plus $540,484 in 2018 and early 2019 — for what it called “a vaguely defined role that involved no regular classes and around a dozen public appearances on campus, mostly in big, ticketed events” (the average salary for a Penn professor, for comparison, was $217,411 in 2017-18).
Though hastily forgotten, if indeed many noticed it at all, Biden last summer spun an elaborate tale about visiting Afghanistan to honor a Naval officer who he said had rappelled down a ravine while under fire to retrieve the body of a fellow soldier. “This is God’s truth,” Biden said, “My word as a Biden.” But as the Washington Post, having investigated the story, put it at the time:
… almost every detail in the story appears to be incorrect … it appears as though the former vice president has jumbled elements of at least three actual events into one story of bravery, compassion and regret that never happened … The upshot: 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.
More recently, Joe Biden’s lying claimed several times to have been “arrested” in the 1970s while “trying to see” Nelson Mandela in prison, a claim that seems to have been entirely fabricated. During a separate town hall event this month Biden also insisted he’d cosponsored the Endangered Species Act (he didn’t). Over the course of the campaign, Biden has elsewhere lied about the circumstances surrounding his vote for the 2003 invasion of Iraq and revived an old falsehood that he “came out of” the Civil Rights Movement.
Nancy Pelosi dismissed Tara Reade’s accusations of sexual assault against Joe Biden. “I know him,” said the House Speaker authoritatively, and that was that.
Does Biden’s record warrant such confidence? Not really. In fact, Joe Biden’s lying has a long history — about himself, about his past and about events that never took place.

Over the past year, Biden thundered that the Obama administration “didn’t lock people up in cages.” He also claimed that, “Immediately, the moment [the Iraq War] started, I came out against it.” And… “I was always labeled one of the most liberal members of Congress.” Politico’s rating of all three assertions? False.
No one should be surprised. Lest we forget…
A video is making the rounds in which Biden boasts at a 1987 rally, “I went to law school on a full academic scholarship…[and] ended up in the top half of my class.”
Biden also maintained that he “graduated with three degrees from undergraduate school” and was the “outstanding student in the political science department.”
Not one of those claims was true, as newscasters at the time affirmed. In fact, Biden graduated 76th of 85 students in his law school class, had only a partial scholarship and did not win top honors in his undergraduate discipline.
Biden explained in his 2007 autobiography “Promises to Keep” that he had been angry at that rally since “it sounded to me that one of my own supporters doubted my intelligence.” According to a 1987 Newsweek piece, a supporter had “politely” asked Biden what law school he attended and how well he had done.
Biden bristled, saying “I think I have a much higher IQ than you do,” reeled off his fabricated accomplishments and concluded “I’d be delighted to sit down and compare my IQ to yours if you’d like, Frank.”
The episode reminds us of Biden recently snapping “You’re full of sh*t” at an auto worker who dared to challenge Biden’s stance on guns; or calling an Iowa voter a “damn liar” for insinuating that Biden had helped his son gain access in Ukraine.
More shocking, Biden claimed: “My ancestors…worked in the coal mines of Northeast Pennsylvania and would come up after 12 hours and play football for four hours,’’ even though no one in Biden’s family tree ever worked underground. That was Kinnock’s family.
It wasn’t the first time; Biden had also been caught plagiarizing during law school. He “borrowed” an entire five pages from a published law review article without attribution and had to beg not to be expelled.
Interestingly, just last summer complaints arose about Biden “borrowing” the work of others, in putting together his climate plan. As Vox reported, Biden’s plan “contains a number of passages that seem to have been copied and pasted, at times with very superficial changes” from a variety of sources.
Biden supporters will dismiss these episodes as being in the distant past. But Biden’s tendency to mislead did not expire in 1988.
Biden’s 1988 presidential campaign, after all, was derailed in a matter of days as a result of similar (and in some cases, identical) falsehoods alongside a plagiarism scandal that saw him lifting oratory almost word-for-word from British Labour leader Neil Kinnock. Moreover, the importance of truth and facts, especially when it comes to claims made by politicians, is supposed to be a major concern of the Trump era — particularly among liberal audiences. In light of all this, it’s worth pondering why Biden’s lies have received so little attention outside the conservative media and why they have never really grown into a major story like the one that ended his presidential ambitions just over three decades ago.
Though it’s a tragedy even one soldier died, one begs to ask the question.. If Joe Biden lies about the death count of soldiers so he can get a boost in the polls, what else is he lying about? And what else would he be willing to lie about for his own benefit?
Looking at what the leftist/Liberal Main Stream Media has done in past 4 years in grilling President Trump, ignoring his achievements, while diverting attention from the lies of Democrats, measuring by that yard stick, one can say that while President Tump’s achievements are not highlighted, Leftist Liberal Main Stream Media has been successful in diverting public attention from the Lies of Joe Biden.
Is it correct that Media has shunned its responsibility to bring about the truth and rather assumed the role of a Propaganda Agency that is available for hire?

Points to Ponder
Would the US public elect a person as President of United States who has no credibility? Why is the Main Stream Media not digging the dark secrets of Joe Biden and not making him scrutiny of the Media Hounds the way Media hounded President Trump for 4 years?
