Biden blatantly lies to National Guard Association

He forgets his own immediate past.

Non-veteran Democrat presidential nominee Joe Biden had the gall and general clueless audacity to criticize the commander-in-chief in front of military veterans at a Saturday virtual meeting of the National Guard Association. President Trump, who also is not a veteran, at least has supported and rebuilt the military during his time in office.

Biden, as part of the failed and disgraced Obama administration, helped to preside over intentional damage to military morale, funding, and procurement. This is because the worldview of the Obama-Biden administration —and that of those who surround Joe Biden and will come to D.C. with him— is that the United States is a malevolent nation that seeks to oppress the rest of the world. As the U.S. military, according to Obama-Biden supporters, is the tool of that oppression, it must be crippled so it cannot perform any national security function.

In front of the National Guard Association, Biden said, “But I promise you as president, I’ll never put you in the middle of politics or personal vendettas. I’ll never use the military as a prop or as a private militia to violate the rights of fellow citizens. That’s not law and order. You don’t deserve that.”

So apparently Joe Biden has conveniently forgotten (while he inconveniently forgets a lot more) how many times Democrat presidents have called out the National Guard.

Do you agree that protesting is acceptable, but rioting is not?

Here’s the liberal Washington Post on Biden’s claim: “That’s not exactly true. Long-standing concerns about the security of the southern border, cited by Trump, led to National Guard troops being deployed by the thousands under Presidents Barack Obama and George W. Bush.”

Thus to fulfill a domestic security requirement, just as President Trump is doing, the two most recent presidents before Trump deployed the Guard. One of those administrations sported a corrupt vice-president from Delaware. Guess which one? But like so much more he has no mental control over, that fact has slipped Biden’s doddering mind. He also neglects to tell the National Guard Association that the Democrat governor of Wisconsin asked Trump to deploy the Guard.

Not to mention Biden overlooked the countless times Democrat President Lyndon Johnson deployed the Guard to quell massive riots during the tumultuous 1960s. Today’s Democrat nominee was a young man then. Has his own youth faded from the mists of his memory? If so, how will a man this obviously bereft of mental clarity be able to discharge the duties of the presidency?
