In the cartoon above Michael Ramirez juxtaposes “Clueless Joe Loser” Biden’s mendacious efforts to convince America he is fit for the Presidency and the game in Washington D.C. What are we to make of the continued revelations of “newly discovered” classified documents that were in Biden’s possession? In Little Joe’s Corvette, Roger Kimball has a prediction:
Biden said he was “surprised” that the classified documents were in his possession. That was supposed to be an exonerating response, but, pace the snake Andrew Weissmann, it is not, legally, exonerating, nor, as a matter of politics, is it reassuring. I mean, there can be no doubt that Joe Biden is “surprised” by many things these days. Which brings me to what I suspect might well be the real significance of this episode. Writing at American Greatness, Josh Hammer recently speculated about whether the deep state is “now coming after Joe Biden.”
Power Line’s Scott Johnson says Biden is toast and links to prescient audio from Rush Limbaugh in which Rush describes how Biden has always served at the pleasure of Barak Obama. Part of the problem here is that clueless Joe Biden is an inveterate liar, never a great way to earn trust. In Lying for the Hell of it, Johnson describes Biden’s latest fib fest at the Ebenezer Baptist Church in Atlanta:
Biden’s speech puts me in mind of the title of Abbie Hoffman’s Revolution For the Hell of It. Does anyone believe the heroic self-portrait he paints as he walks down memory lane? And yet he persists. At this point he might be lying for the hell of it. It is certainly not a function of old age. He is a bald and inveterate liar — an Oops! I did it again kind of guy.
Right at the top of his remarks, before he turned to his text, Biden asserted: “Let’s lay one thing to rest. I may be a practicing Catholic, but [I] used to go to 7:30 Mass every morning in high school and then in college before I went to the Black church,” Biden said. “Not a joke, [former Ambassador] Andy [Young] knows this.” And so on.
“Andy, it’s so great to see you, man,” Biden continued “You’re one of the greatest we’ve ever had. Andy and I took on apartheid in South Africa and a whole lot else. They didn’t want to see him coming. But we used to – that’s when we would organize to march and to desegregate the city.”
Biden’s claim of attendance at “the Black church” (i.e., the Union Baptist Church in Wilmington) was a staple of his huckstering during the 2020 presidential campaign along with his fabricated arrest in South Africa. Alana Goodman looked into Biden’s claim of attendance at “the Black church” for the Washington Free Beacon in October 2020. She could find no evidence that he had. Not surprisingly, “[t]he Biden campaign did not respond to a request for comment.”
