Seven women have filed complaints against Joe Biden for inappropriate touching and Tara Reade has filed a police report against Joe Biden for sexual assault. Another woman, Eva Murray, now 26, has also alleged Biden sexually harassed her when she was just 14 years old “telling me I had very large breasts for a 14 year old.” Many other videos have surfaced of Biden inappropriately touching several children and young females.
When the Supreme Court confirmation hearings for Brett Kavanuagh concluded in 2018, Democrats brought up an allegation from Christine Blasey Ford, a Democrat herself, that Brett Kavanaugh had sexually assaulted her at a high school party. Her lawyer, Debra Katz, a Democrat operative who was videotaped at a left-wing rally yelling, “We are going to resist. We will not be silenced.”
The allegation from Ford provided no corroborating witnesses of the incident or even that she discussed the alleged incident in the previous 36 years. There was no proof that she even met Kavanaugh since she was in college when he was in high school. Even Ford’s friend, Leland Keyser contradicted the narrative of the party from 1982 with no recollections of the event and Ford unsure herself didn’t know how she got home or where the alleged party occurred. However Democrats and liberal women organizations stood in line demanding Ford “must be believed” as Kavanaugh was smeared.
Nancy Pelosi tweeted, “I applaud the courage of Dr. Christine Blasey Ford to come forward to share her story. As we continue to learn more about these allegations against Judge Kavanaugh, we must ensure that Dr. Ford’s rights to justice and privacy are respected.
Joe Biden stated, “It takes enormous courage for a woman to come forward” and that she “should be given the benefit of the doubt and not be, you know, abused again by the system.” In another statement, that the “presumption that at least the essence of what she’s talking about is real, whether or not she forgets the facts.”
The standard by all Democrats was Ford “must be believed” with the Democrat media running a platform to have the Kavanaugh nomination withdrawn. CNN for example ran over 700 anti-Kavanaugh news segments. They wanted Kavanaugh removed just on the notion of the METOO movement that Ford “must be believed”. The motive? By October 2018, the country was close to a midterm election, and if Democrats could throw out or stall the Kavanaugh confirmation and win control of the senate, they could stall or control the balance of power on the Supreme Court.
The irony of the Tara Reade allegation against Biden was that Reade was a staffer for Biden in 1993 when Biden allegedly penetrated her with his fingers against her will. Reade knew the location and details of the incident. Reade told Lynda LaCasse, a Democrat, in either 1995 or 1996 of the incident. Reade also discussed the sexual assault by Biden with Larraine Sanchez, her brother and an unnamed friend, who both confirmed Reade told her mother, Jeanette Altimus, who is confirmed as the voice to call into CNN’s Larry King Live in 1993 to discuss her daughter as a staffer with a problem with a “prominent senator”. That video clip owned by CNN was exposed by Newsbusters as CNN deliberately attempted to hide it.
While the media was so quick to accused Kavanaugh of guilt, they were protecting Biden. The New York Times separately reported that Reade told two unnamed friend about the episode –one at a time, and another in 2008, with the paper stealth-editing the story at the request of the Biden campaign. The New York Times, as well as other media outlets deleted reference to Biden’s past inappropriate complaints to protect the Biden campaign with news stories attempting to cover for Biden. Most of the METOO movement has also remained silent. Adding to the hypocrisy was the New York Times editorial board suggesting that Biden be investigated by the Democrat National Committee. Seriously? That would be the equivalent of Al Capone being investigated by the Colosimo mob.
Biden was never questioned about the alleged incident until the CNN 1993 Larry King new clip was discovered with CNN ignoring the allegation until the clip was released; but then the clip was deleted by Google’s youtube search engine.
Despite Reade providing substantially more corroborating evidence than Ford, the media was mostly silent until being forced to cover the story.
Not only are those Democrats who stated Ford “must be believed” silent about Reade; but Nancy Pelosi and Hilary Clinton have since endorsed Biden. When Pelosi was questioned about her hypocrisy, she snapped back that she doesn’t need a lecture.
Reade today has received online harassment of vulgar language and threats. Reade stated just May 3, 2020, “I’m a Democrat, a lifelong Democrat, but yet here I am trying to talk about my history with Joe Biden and I’m just the target of online harassment.
How is the Biden campaign responding? Biden delegates are calling Reade “a liar” and calling for an FBI investigation of reporters who report on or discuss the Reade accusation in order to silence any coverage of a story of which Reade “must be believed” making this the hypocrisy of Biden and Kavanaugh to a different standard.
