Joe Biden: The Gift that Keeps on Giving
Joe Biden: The Gift that Keeps on Giving
November is the time when families across the United States gather together to give thanks. We review our lives and the “gifts” we’ve received: family, health, friends, rewards and challenges. One of those “gifts” we must look at this year is Joe Biden. The former Vice-President has a new book coming out this month. He has also “gifted” us with his opinion on the hero of Sutherland Springs. Then there is this reminder of some of his creepier actions while Vice-President.
It will be a very long time before anyone, especially any Texan, forgets the horror that happened in Sutherland Springs earlier this month. November 5th will be etched in our memories, not only because of the horror inflicted on that small town by Devin Kelley but also for the heroism shown by Stephen Willeford. Had it not been for the actions of Mr. Willeford in leaving the safety of his home and shooting Kelley, who knows how many others might have been injured or killed in that small church. But, according to Biden, Willeford never should have had the AR-15 he used to injure Kelley. It doesn’t matter to the former Vice-President that Willeford legally bought and owned the AR-15. Biden is one of those who believe no one on the civilian side of life should own an AR or similar weapon.
“Well, first of all, the kind of gun being carried he shouldn’t be carrying . . .Assault weapons are … I wrote the last serious gun control law that was written and was law for 10 years, and it outlawed assault weapons and it outlawed weapons with magazines that had a whole lot of bullets and so you can kill a whole lot of people a lot more quickly.”
So, if Biden had his way, Willeford, a former NRA instructor, wouldn’t have had the proper weapon necessary to stop Kelley. Remember, Kelley is reported to have worn protective gear at the time he attacked the members of Sutherland Springs’ First Baptist Church. As Willeford said, had he used a handgun or a less powerful weapon than the AR, his attempts to stop the gunman might have been futile. How many more would have died? But that didn’t matter to good ole Joe who had to make sure we all knew not only that he penned gun control legislation but that he feels ARs, even legally owned ones, are bad.
Remember, this is a man who is starting to make sounds like he might be considering running for President.
But it gets better — or worse, depending on your point of view. In this day and age where you can’t pick up a paper or turn on the news without hearing about another public figure being accused of sexually harassing someone, there is one name that is missing from that list. Yes, Joe Biden’s. Back in Feb. 2015, Time Magazine published the article, “America Shouldn’t Tolerate ‘Biden Being Biden'”. In that article, Time asks, “What then can be said of people, today, looking the other way as the vice president of the United States paws woman after woman in public, with cameras flashing and their husband or parent three feet away?”
And yet we hear crickets from the Democrats when it comes to Biden. And let’s not forget Bill Clinton (Of course, as far as Hillary is concerned, that’s in the past. Move on.)
Not that everyone is holding their tongues. In this article from The Gateway Pundit, a Secret Service agent talked about a number of incidents surrounding Biden. From swimming in the nude and walking around the residence sans clothing, but only when Mrs. Biden wasn’t around, to inappropriate touching to a reported incident where another agent was suspended after shoving Biden for grabbing his girl friend’s breast, the picture is not a pretty one.
He [the agent] said that the men on duty would frequently stand in front of female agents and Navy women that were present “like a damn guardian.” On some occasions, they would make up reasons to get the women away from where he [Biden] was.
Yet we aren’t hearing about this behavior from a man who is beginning to make noises that sound an awful lot like he is considering a run for the White House. A man who, in many ways, should remind us of Uncle Ernie from the Who’s rock musical, Tommy.
Like Uncle Ernie, “Uncle Joe” Biden is the gift that just keeps on giving or, like Christmas fruitcake, is the present you can’t wait to regift.
