In this, our fourteenth episode of Madness Chronicles, we will see the madness of the Democratic Party in electing Joe Biden for president. Remember, insanity is an especially severe state of mental illness, extremely foolish behavior, and a state of frenzied or chaotic activity. Let’s take a look at Mr. Biden.
A decade ago, this month in 2010, then-Vice President Biden briefly mourned the death of the Irish Prime Minister’s mother, even though she was very much alive. It was a celebration of Saint Patrick, so maybe it was lively? After his ‘victory’ last week in the South Carolina primary, Sleep Joe, as he is called, addressed his supporters in a victory celebration. He began by introducing his sister as his wife and his wife as his sister. Is that presidential? Maybe we shouldn’t jump to conclusions?
In the election campaign last August, candidate Biden said: “I want to be clear: I am not going crazy.” That was his response when he struggled to identify the location of a speech he had just given. Later that week, while campaigning in New England, more questions arose. “What don’t I like about Vermont?” Biden asked. Well, nothing really except that he was in New Hampshire. While on the stump in Iowa, he mistook Burlington, Iowa, for Burlington, Vermont. An honest mistake, I’m sure.
While campaigning in South Carolina, Biden told the audience: “On this day, 30 years ago, Nelson Mandela got out of jail and got into discussions about apartheid.” At the time, Nelson Mandela was incarcerated on Robbens Island off the coast of Cape Town, South Africa. Biden’s story as reported by the New York Times claimed that he was in Soweto, South Africa, to visit Mandela and was arrested along with UN Ambassador Andrew Young. Joe, always the tough guy who talks on the street, claimed that he was arrested because of apartheid and later practiced against blacks in that country. The only problem with its history, it is not true. Even Andrew Young told the media that he was not arrested, and neither was Biden. Lying is undoubtedly extremely silly behavior, but it wasn’t the first time for Biden.
In New Hampshire, while answering questions, he found one he didn’t like. He called the lady who asked him: “A liar dog-faced pony soldier.” What could that mean? Creepy Joe, as some call him, told another lie along the same lines of Hillary Clinton getting out of the helicopter under sniper fire. It seems that Biden, as vice president, showed great personal courage and heroism by traveling to a dangerous war zone to recognize the service of an American soldier who had distinguished himself in a particularly dramatic way. It was a moving story. “This is the truth of God,” he concluded. “My word as Biden.”
The problem once again is … not true. The Washington Post reported that “Biden misunderstood the time period, location, heroic act, type of medal, military branch and rank of the recipient, as well as his own role in the ceremony.” The man who would be king lied about an act of military heroism to enhance his own role in history. They say that insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result. You’d think that when he was caught once he would fly straight. Not so for good old Joe.
Joe Biden’s most questionable insanity is his lie about the death of his first wife. The tragic accident that claimed the lives of his 30-year-old wife and their young daughter was, in fact, his fault. She had mistakenly passed a stop sign and was hit by a tractor-trailer. The driver provided help at the scene to his two young children who were injured in the accident. Police records confirm this story.
But that doesn’t stop Joe Biden from capitalizing on his pain. He has been telling the public for years, with teary eyes, how a wandering trucker who ‘drank his lunch’ crashed into his wife, killing her and their daughter. As the media challenged him along the way, he continued to tell his story. During her recent run for president, the trucker’s daughter asked Biden for an apology for years of insulting her father. There is no record anywhere that he was humble enough to offer an apology to a man who did nothing wrong.
We, of course, have no way of knowing someone’s state of mind or what motivates them. However, we can decide based on the actions of a person. And Mr. Biden’s actions speak louder than anything he could say. What his behavior screams is that it would be pure madness to put this man at the helm of the United States.
May we wake up from this madness before it is too late. I wish you good health and until next time … have fun, enjoy life and watch out for the madness between us.
