Roamin’ Catholic: Lying Joe Biden Now Claims He Was ‘Raised in the Black Church’

He’s reaching again.

From Irish Catholic to Black Baptist *snap* just that fast…

Known for telling tall tales, extreme exaggerations, and even outright lies, the Democrat nominee for the presidency is at it again.

After a lifetime of painting himself as an oh, so devout Catholic (despite a lifetime of going against the teachings of the same), it was recently uncovered that Biden stated at a Jesse Jackson rally last year that he “was raised in the black church.”

As reported by the Washington Free Beacon (emphasis mine);

On the campaign trail, Joe Biden has talked frequently about his early years in the civil rights movement. As a teenager, he says, he regularly attended a black church in Wilmington, Del., where he was involved in organizing anti-segregation protests in the early 1960s.

“I got raised in the black church,” Biden said in a speech to Jesse Jackson’s Rainbow PUSH coalition last year. “We would go sit in Rev. Herring’s church, sit there before we’d go out, and try to change things when I was a kid in college and in high school.”

The church Biden referenced, Union Baptist Church, was a prominent African-American church in Wilmington run by Rev. Otis Herring, an acclaimed pastor who passed away in 1996. But Biden has made comments that seem to contradict the account. When reporters questioned Biden’s claim in 1987 that he marched in the civil rights movement, he acknowledged that he “wasn’t an activist” and that his most significant experience with civil rights as a youth was when he worked at a majority-black swimming pool as a college sophomore in 1962.

Now, interviews with long-time church members are raising questions about his story. Biden befriended Herring as an adult, they say, but they do not recall him attending the church as a teenager.

Phyllis Drummond, Herring’s longtime assistant who attended Union Baptist for 39 years, said she was not involved with the church in the early 1960s but does not think Biden attended at that time. “No. Not at our building. I think he was probably in Claymont, [Del.,] [or] in Pennsylvania then,” Drummond told the Washington Free Beacon.

The Biden campaign did not respond to a request for comment.

Juanita Matthew, who joined Union Baptist in the 1970s and has run its affiliated day-care center for decades, said she wasn’t aware of Biden’s attendance as a teenager.

In an Intercept article in February, reporter Robert Mackey also challenged Biden’s account, noting that the former vice president’s 2007 memoir Promises to Keep made no mention of these stories.

Furthermore, cites some of Biden’s bigger lies, complete with links on the OP;

  • Biden claimed to have marched for Civil Rights. He didn’t.
  • Biden claimed to have graduated at the top of his law class. He graduated near the bottom — number 76 out of 85 students.
  • Biden claimed to be the first person in his family to go to college. He wasn’t.
  • Biden claimed he attended college on a full academic scholarship. He didn’t.
  • Biden claimed he graduated with three degrees. He graduated with one.
  • Biden claimed he immediately opposed the Iraq War. He didn’t.
  • Biden claimed he called Slobodan Milosevic a “war criminal” to his face. He didn’t.
  • Biden claimed the Obama administration did not pull illegal alien children in “cages.” They did.
  • Biden claimed his wife and daughter were killed by a drunk driver. The driver was not only sober, he was not responsible for the accident. According to investigators, Biden’s late wife drove into the path of the other driver.
  • Biden claimed a helicopter he was flying in was “forced down” when touring Afghanistan near where bin Laden was supposedly holed up. The helicopter landed to wait out a snowstorm.
  • Biden said he was a coalminer. He wasn’t.
  • Biden claimed he was “shot at” in Iraq. He wasn’t.
  • Joe Biden claimed he was arrested in South Africa. He wasn’t.

Crazy Joe Tells Another Whopper; Now Says he was ‘a Teacher, a Professor’ – Forgets he was Vice President for Eight Years

To make everyone feel like they had a backstage pass, Joe delivers speech to the flag.

Poor Joe has stepped into it yet again. In all fairness, maybe he was mixing-up his fantasy professorship with that time he pinned the Seal of Approval medal on that Hungarian admiral back during the Cola Wars.

Then again, he may have been thinking of his youthful rumble with Tony di Tigre when Joe was Junior Detective-in-charge of the Gang Enforcement Squad back on the mean streets of Wilmington, Delaware.

Hillary caught lying to the American people about never lying to the American people

24588265245_b90a5a7658_bThe legacy media has oft been accused by the political Right of creating and maintaining a bubble of protection around liberal politicians. Reporter Scott Pelly of CBS News may have given conservatives more ammunition in a recent one-on-one interview with Democratic presidential contender Hillary Clinton.

Obama’s Broken Campaign Promise X3

obamaWe are leaving in 2014. Period.” -Joe Biden, 2012.

For a third time, the campaign promise made by Team Obama/Biden during the 2012 presidential race has been matter-of-factly relegated to the dustbin of politics as usual. While Joe Biden’s promise to the American people that all US troops would be out of Afghanistan, in Biden’s words, “We are leaving in 2014. Period,” the truth of the matter is that particular Democratic Party talking point has proven itself to be a blatant lie.

Obama’s ‘cell phone cost’ claim under fire: ObamaCare twice as expensive

While appearing on the satirical faux-interview internet show “Between Two Ferns,” Barack Obama may have made claims concerning the low costs of ObamaCare that weren’t quite as cheap as he’s been touting. And to complicate matters, Obama has also seemingly contradicted himself that the costs of ObamaCare may not hit the average citizen in the checkbook as much as they thought, as reported by WSB radio (of Atlanta, GA) on March 14, 2014, and also the right-of-center news portal The Daily Caller on March 12, 2014.

The Untouchable, Bulletproof and Teflon-Coated Barack Hussein Obama

“The issue is now clear. It is between light and darkness and everyone must choose his side…”

Ronald Reagan was made out of Teflon. Bill Clinton was simply bulletproof. Barack Obama? That guy is both as well as untouchable.


The litany of abuses and scandals that swirl around Obama as well as nip at the heels of his administration could at least be described as dizzying.
