Joe Biden lied about his first wife being killed by a drunk driver

On December 18, 1972, a few weeks after Joe Biden won the U.S. Senate election in Delaware, his (first) wife Neilia and one-year-old daughter Naomi were killed in an automobile accident while Christmas shopping in Hockessin, Delaware. Neilia Biden’s station wagon was hit by a tractor-trailer truck as she pulled out from an intersection. Biden’s sons Beau and Hunter survived the accident in fair condition: Beau had a broken leg and other wounds; Hunter had a minor skull fracture and other head injuries.

News and law enforcement reports from the time cleared Curtis C. Dunn, the driver of the tractor-trailer, of any wrongdoing.  Investigators determined alcohol did not play a role in the 1972 crash, and the police never charged Dunn.

But that hadn’t stopped Joe Biden from lying about Dunn, who died in 1999.

Along with the lie that he had a “blue-collar” upbringing (he actually had a decidedly upper class, albeit not rich-rich, childhood), Joe Biden had for years claimed that Neilia and their daughter were killed by a drunk driver named Curtis C. Dunn.

As examples, in 2001 and in 2007, Biden explicitly said Dunn had been driving under the influence:

  • A few days after the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, Biden told an audience at the University of Delaware’s Bob Carpenter Center: “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.”
  • On December 14, 2007, the New York Times portrayed Democratic presidential candidate and then-Senator Joe Biden (D-Delaware) as a tragic figure who “has survived so much personal and political catastrophe” and “rebuilt his life”. Biden told a crowd at the University of Iowa: “Let me tell you a little story. 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.”

The media all repeated Joe Biden’s slander of Curtis Dunn. As examples:

  • From The Economist on August 28, 2008: “He [Joe Biden] 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.”
  • Reporting for the Huffington Post on September 10, 2008, Cristina Chang wrote: “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 fact of the matter is that it was Neilia Biden, not Curtis Dunn, who might have been at fault.

In October 2008, Dunn’s daughter, Pamela Hamill, had had enough of Joe Biden’s lies about her father. As reported by Carl Hamilton for Newark Post on Oct. 30, 2008:

Newark resident Pamela Hamill wants a public apology from vice presidential candidate U.S. Sen. Joseph Biden (D-Del.), who she says has repeatedly besmirched her late father, Curtis C. Dunn.

Dunn died in 1999, but his daughter says she’s fed up with Biden publicly mischaracterizing him as having been drunk when the accident occurred.

According to Delaware Superior Court Judge Jerome O. Herlihy, who oversaw the police investigation 36 years ago as chief prosecutor, there is no evidence supporting Biden’s claim. “The rumor about alcohol being involved by either party, especially the truck driver (Dunn), is incorrect,” Herlihy said recently.

Police determined that Biden’s first wife drove into the path of Dunn’s tractor-trailer, possibly because her head was turned and she didn’t see the oncoming truck.

Dunn, who overturned his rig while swerving to avoid a collision, ran to the wrecked car and was the first to render assistance.

Police filed no charges against Dunn, who at that time lived in North East, Md. with his wife, Ruby, and their seven children….

Hamill says she defended Biden at first, believing that, perhaps, his words had been misconstrued.

But her disbelief turned to anguish when shown a video of Biden making his unfounded assertion during a public appearance….

“I just burst into tears,” Hamill said. “The story already is tragic enough, why did he have to sensationalize it by saying my father was drunk? My family is outraged.” …

Hamill appeared on “Inside Edition” on Sept. 18 to set the record straight and now, acting as family spokesperson, she is campaigning for Biden to recant his story and restore her father’s honor.

On Oct. 1, after several attempts to make contact, Hamill sent a registered letter to Biden’s camp, asking him to tell the truth.

She also asked CBS officials to instruct Katie Couric to broadcast the real circumstances surrounding the fatal accident.

As of Sunday, Hamill hadn’t heard from Biden’s camp.

In an Oct. 21 e-mail, a CBS spokesman acknowledged discrepancies in Biden’s story and explained that he’s awaiting word from the “news people.” …

Hamill wants to clear her late father’s name before Biden’s story is even more widely accepted as fact.

“Suppose he becomes the next vice president,” she said. “Movies could be made about him and books could be written about him, all falsely portraying my father as a drunk driver. We need to set the record straight and clear my father’s name right now before this goes any further.”

To my knowledge, to this day Joe Biden had not apologized for lying and slandering Curtis Dunn.

Kamala Harris claims President Trump “already confessed” so impeachment shouldn’t take very long

You demorats have been screeching about impeachment for almost three years. If you really got the goods, then DO IT NOW. And don’t do it behind closed doors.

From Daily Mail: Kamala Harris claimed the impeachment of President Trump ‘shouldn’t take very long…because he has already confessed’.

The Democratic 2020 presidential candidate said on Sunday that Trump has already admitted to the necessary ‘high crimes and misdemeanors’ outlined in the Constitution to see him removed from office.

Speaking at the United Food and Commercial Workers (UFCW) forum in Iowa, Harris, who was previously attorney general of California and San Francisco, was asked if she would prosecute Trump.

The senator replied that Congress should already have enough to force Trump from the White House after his phone call with Ukraine president Volodymyr Zelensky was made public.

She told the audience: ‘Here’s the thing, I have been calling for the impeachment of this president for a long time and for the process to proceed, and based on everything I know, yes.

Trump is accused of trying to pressure Ukrainian leaders to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden and his son, Hunter, over his time on the board of a natural gas company in the country.

In a phone call on July 25, Trump is alleged to have threatened to withhold aid to Ukraine unless a Ukrainian prosecutor looks into the Bidens. Trump denied any ‘quid pro quo’ was offered in the call and the White House later released a redacted transcript of the conversation.

Harris has previously called for Trump to be impeached during the nearly two-year Mueller probe over alleged Russian collusion in the 2016 presidential campaign – long before the Ukrainian revelations.

She went on to say on Sunday that Congress’ impeachment proceedings already had a ‘confession’, according to the Daily Wire.

The California senator reportedly added: ‘Here is how I think about it, because we have got a confession and it don’t take a prosecutor to see that was a confession. I mean, we have a confession, we have a cover-up, right?

Joe Biden is currently one of the front-runners for the Democrat 2020 nomination among a dozen candidates, including Harris.

Gun-controlled Baltimore has one of its most violent weekends: 17 shot, including 2-year-old

The Baltimore Sun reports that this past weekend, 17 people were shot — four of them fatally —one of its most brutal weekends on record. This includes a two-year-old boy who was shot in the stomach during a “road rage” incident.

More from the Sun:

“The violent crime is “sad and incredible sickening,” Republican Gov. Larry Hogan said, “especially when innocent children are caught in the middle.”

“As I have said repeatedly, enough is enough,” Hogan said in a statement. “We will continue working closely with city leaders and urging members of the legislature to do more to get these repeat violent offenders off our streets.”

A spokesman for Democratic Mayor Bernard C. “Jack” Young did not respond to a request for comment.

City Council President Brandon Scott, a Democrat who is running for mayor, called the weekend’s bloodshed “unacceptable” and said he intends to increase pressure on Baltimore police and Commissioner Michael Harrison to address the violence.

“We have to start to push a little harder on how they’re dealing with the violence day to day,” he said.

Harrison said in a statement that the men and women of the police department are focused on deterring violent crime in Baltimore.

“Prior to this weekend, as I mentioned to the City Council last week, I was encouraged by the overall trends in homicides and shootings over the past several weeks,” he said. “I think we all recognize that the issues driving spikes in violence must be addressed by a wide range of people and organizations, not just the police department, in order to make Baltimore the city we all want it to be.”

Read here about all the gun violence in Baltimore this past weekend.

California wants to get rid of Ham radio communication; endangers lives

More bad, anti-freedom moves by the single-party government of the State of California.

Ham radio is a time-tested, low-cost, reliable means of communication when emergencies strike. As in other states, Ham radio operators have been assisting California’s fire and emergency services for free for years. In fact, Ham radio is the only source of communication when the power is out and the cell-phone towers are down. The equipment costs the state nothing, as it is operated by the Ham radio owners. Simply put, there is no benefit or justifiable reason to eliminate Ham radio commuication.

But the California State government, although supposedly concerned about deadly wildfires, is now determined to eliminate Ham radio communication.

Megan Fox reports for PJ Media, Oct. 15, 2019, that in spite of PG&E recent massive power shut-down that plunged a wide swath of northern California into darkness, the state’s Fire District has decided that Ham radio equipment in remote areas must be removed unless radio operators cough up a prohibitive fee to lease the land from the government.

In an email to Ham operators, Lorina Pisi of the Department of General Services of California’s Public Works Board, wrote:

I do understand and appreciate all of the service you have provided in the past. However, with constantly changing technological advances, there is no longer the same benefit to State as previously provided. Therefore, the Department no longer financially supports HAM operators radios or tenancy. If you desire to enter into a formal agreement to operate and maintain said equipment, you must complete and submit attached collocation application along with fee as outlined on page one of application. There is cost associated with getting an agreement in place. In addition to the technical analysis fee ($2500/application), there is DGS Lease admin cost associated (typically between $3000-$5000) with preparation of lease. Also, there will be an annual rent charge based upon equipment type/space.

OffGrid Survival observes:

What is infuriating here is people are going to die because of this decision. It costs the State of California nothing to allow these repeaters on public land; in fact, Ham Radio Operators pay for the equipment and maintain the equipment at their own cost. Ham Radio operators also make nothing from running these radio repeaters; they do so as a service to the public to help ensure the public’s safety during natural disasters and emergencies.

In a letter to Lorina Pisi, with cc to California Gov. Gavin Newsom, Sen. Brian Dahle, Shasta County Sheriff’s Office of Emergency Services, Shingletown Volunteer Fire Department, and others, attorney A. Nathan Zeliff writes:

Dear Ms. Pisi:

I am writing you concerning your e-mail to Ham Radio Repeater owners advising them that they must remove all repeater equipment from various mountain locations unless they pay huge fees…. I am advised that this action is being done for the entire State of California. Many of these repeaters have been in public safety use for decades. They have saved lives. They have in fact been used for public safety and to protect life and property when the public communication systems have completely collapsed and failed during disasters.

The cost to the State of California is nothing for these repeaters. Rather, Ham Radio Operators pay for the equipment and maintain the equipment at their own cost. The Ham Radio Operators do not make any money off of these repeaters.

Your actions will destroy the existing Ham Radio Repeater System Infrastructure and Network that is a critical and vital asset for Disaster Emergency Communications. This Ham Radio Emergency Communications Infrastructure has existed for decades. Additionally, once removed, these Ham Radio assets will be cost prohibitive to rebuild….

The FACT IS – when there is a complete communication failure (no phones, no cell phones, no internet, no reverse 911, no code red, no ability to dial 911, and no ability to warn people who are asleep at 2:00 AM in the morning of a raging wildfire, etc…,) ALL of the Cal Fire and Sheriff recommendations go up in smoke. WHY? Because there is no WAY to send or receive any information OR even issue warnings! Communities will have no communications. They will not be able to advise neighbors that the exit to a subdivision is blocked by a fallen tree. They will not be able to ask others to bring chain saws and trucks to open up the exit. There will be no actual ability to coordinate or communicate. You can’t effectively warn your neighbors about a fire at 2:00 A.M., without communications!

In the real world scenario of a communications blackout and raging fire, all of those “technological advances” you advised of in your e-mail will HAVE ALL FAILED AND DO NOT WORK! Your claim that Ham Radio is no longer a “benefit” to the State, is delusional….

The Governor of California issued Executive Order N-05-19, dated January 8, 2019, recognizing California as having experienced the most destructive wildfire season in State history during 2018, enduring over 7,600 wildfires that burned 1,846,445 acres in total. The Executive Order referenced the Camp Fire as being the deadliest fire in State history claiming the lives of 86 people….

Under this Executive Order, Cal Fire was charged with providing a written report to the Governor with recommendations… “necessary to prevent and mitigate wildfires to the greatest extent possible”….

Cal Fire responds by instituting a destructive project to remove Critical Emergency Ham Radio Communications Infrastructure. Such is in flagrant disregard of the Executive Order and devoid of any notion of common sense. Moreover, making an emergency resource cost prohibitive is in fact destruction of that resource! Additionally, once removed, these Ham Radio assets will be cost prohibitive to rebuild….

Compounding the situation is that PG & E may shut off communities electricity during Red Flag and other events. This poses additional risks. Communication Blackouts may result….

So why would the California State government do something so irrational as eliminating Ham radio communication?

OffGrid Survival believes this is the reason:

The real story here is Ham Radio is a threat to the government. We make them look stupid! They spend billions on infrastructure that breaks down, while we can literally take a hundred bucks in equipment, some random wires, and in minutes set up a radio system that can communicate with anyone in the world. Hell, I’ve used my kid’s slinky, some Television Coax Cable, and a solar battery system to build a mobile rig that I’ve used to talk to people around the world —  You can check out the Radio Rig Here. They don’t want the public to realize that we can take care of ourselves, and do a much better and cheaper job doing so!

More #FakeNews: ABC airs Kentucky gun range video as Turkish “bombing” of Syria

ABC apologized for their “mistake:”

“CORRECTION: We’ve taken down video that aired on “World News Tonight” Sunday and “Good Morning America” this morning that appeared to be from the Syrian border immediately after questions were raised about its accuracy,” the network tweeted. “ABC News regrets the error.”

This was NO MISTAKE. It was an attempt to sway peoples’ opinion about President Trump and his recent actions in Syria.

The MSM is ramping up their attempts to influence the 2020 elections. Don’t be fooled by the #FAKENEWS.

Professor claims SpongeBob SquarePants is racist

It would be quicker for progressives to make a list of everything that is not racist.

From Yahoo: Spongebob Squarepants has been accused of normalizing the colonization of indigenous lands by a professor at the University of Washington.

The children’s cartoon – which marked its 20th anniversary this year – was criticized in a report by Professor Holly M. Barker.

She wrote: “SpongeBob SquarePants and his friends play a role in normalizing the settler colonial takings of indigenous lands while erasing the ancestral Bikinian people from their nonfictional homeland.”

The character Spongebob is a friendly sea sponge who lives in a pineapple under the sea among the other residents of a town called Bikini Bottom. Professor Barker believes that this is a reference to the real-life Bikini Atoll in the Marshall Islands in the Pacific Ocean.

Natives of Bikini Atoll were relocated in 1946 so the US military could use the area for nuclear testing during the Cold War, which drew criticism from the media after it was revealed that the inhabitants were left without adequate food or water to prevent them from starvation.

Later nuclear tests left the islands of the atoll contaminated with enough radiation to affect food grown in the soil, which meant the islands’ inhabitants were unable to return, and those who did experienced issues such as stillbirths, miscarriages and genetic abnormalities.

This has given rise to fan theories that the cartoon inhabitants of Bikini Bottom owe their mutation to the testing.

Professor Barker believes that as an American character allowed to inhabit an area that natives had no choice but to leave, SpongeBob showed his privilege of “not caring about the detonation of nuclear bombs”.

She also points out that the cultural appropriation of Pacific culture in Spongebob Squarepants, with Hawaiian-style shirts, homes in the shapes of pineapples, tikis and Easter Island heads, and the sounds of a steel guitar perpetuating stereotypes of the region.

In the article, Professor Barker claims that because of these themes, children have “become acculturated to an ideology that includes the U.S. character SpongeBob residing on another people’s homeland.”

The article concludes with this: We should be uncomfortable with a hamburger-loving American community’s occupation of Bikini’s lagoon and the ways that it erodes every aspect of sovereignty.”

The article was published in the journal The Contemporary Pacific: A Journal of Island Affairs.
