Did he forget how his son died? Biden says his son Beau ‘lost his life in Iraq’ during Colorado speech

President Biden once again brazenly lied during a revisionist speech in Colorado on Wednesday when he claimed his late son Beau “lost his life in Iraq” despite the well-known fact that he died of brain cancer.

The manner in which Beau Biden died has been known for a long time. Since 2019 the president has been asserting that his son got brain cancer from being exposed to burn pits in Iraq. Now, the story has evolved to his son actually dying in combat there except that’s simply not true.

“In my view, I can’t prove it yet, he came back with stage four glioblastoma. Eighteen months he lived, knowing he was going to die,” the president asserted in 2019, according to the Daily Mail.

Biden was in Vail, Colorado to declare by executive order the Camp Hale continental divide as a national monument. He slipped in the fabrication as he railed on about military heroism, weaving in his son’s death for political effect.

“American soldiers of the 10th Mountain Division scaled that 1800-foot cliff, at night, caught the Germans by surprise, captured key positions, and broke through the Germans’ defensive line at a pivotal point in the war. Just imagine — I mean it sincerely — I say this as a father of a man who won the Bronze Star, the conspicuous service medal, and lost his life in Iraq,” the president declared.

“Imagine the courage, the daring, and the genuine sacrifice — genuine sacrifice they all made,” he continued, recounting how Camp Hale played a part in the 10th Mountain Division in World War II.

Beau Biden, who was also the former attorney general of Delaware and a military reservist, passed away due to brain cancer in 2015. He served in Iraq in 2009 and earned a Bronze Star medal for his heroism.

The president allegedly designated Camp Hale as a national monument because of its perceived historic connection to WWII. It ostensibly has far more to do with preventing oil and gas drilling on 436 square miles of land in Colorado.

The move is meant to bypass congressional inaction on the Colorado Outdoor Recreation Economy Act. Colorado’s Democratic Sen. Michael Bennett has heavily pushed for its passage, especially during his tight midterm race against Republican Joe O’Dea.

Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO) has accurately called the declaration of the 54,000-acre Camp Hale divide a “federal land grab.”

For good measure, Biden is blocking new mining claims and mineral leases on the 225,000 acres in the Thompson Divide area for at least two years and possibly up to two decades.

President Biden has a long history of gaffes and playing loose with the facts and truth in general.

The New York Times somehow just recently woke up to the lies that Biden gets away with constantly in a report that finally addressed the issue. Well, sort of.

The Times noted that Biden has lied about being “raised in the Puerto Rican community at home,” his academic record, his life story, being arrested when protesting civil rights, being arrested in South Africa, pinning a Silver Star on a Navy captain and the timeline when he rode on Amtrak to visit his sick mother, among other incidents. The Times did not mention the infamous claim that he confronted a gang leader named “Corn Pop” in the 1960s.

Despite the report, the New York Times still has trouble calling the president out for his fibbing. Instead, it softens the fact by stating that he “embellished narratives, sometimes only loosely based on the facts, to weave together his political identity.” In other words, he lied.

“Mr. Biden’s folksiness can veer into folklore, with dates that don’t quite add up and details that are exaggerated or wrong, the factual edges shaved off to make them more powerful for audiences,” the Times commented.

Fox News elaborated on Biden’s penchant for not telling the truth.

“Some of Biden’s dishonest statements are political, such as the time he claimed the economy had ‘zero percent inflation’ during July when it was actually 8.5%. Other times, they’re wildly exaggerated tidbits about his personal life. He often botches key details, misremembers dates, and sometimes seems to just make up or embellish tales about his past,” the media outlet stated.

“He has falsely claimed he was ‘appointed’ to the Naval Academy, dishonestly said he was arrested in South Africa, misleadingly bragged he was arrested during the civil rights movement in the United States, inaccurately claimed he was once a professional truck driver, and oddly claimed he was ‘sort of raised in the Puerto Rican community at home,'” Fox News continued.

“Biden’s lies are sometimes repeated multiple times, often growing bigger with each exaggerated version of the actual event. He declared this week that ‘everything was ruined’ from the basement to the attic and ‘we almost lost a couple firefighters’ when lightning struck his home 15 years ago,” they added.

According to the Associated Press, “no one was injured” in the “small fire that was contained to the kitchen” and under control within 20 minutes.

Greg Price, who is a senior digital strategist for X Strategies, was very blunt on why Biden gets a pass from the mainstream media.

“The reason he gets away with it is because, contrary to what Chris Cilizza once said, reporters do in fact root for a side,” Price told Fox News Digital in an interview.

Fox News contributor Joe Concha nailed Biden for lying.

“He constantly lies with impunity and for no apparent reason. He said he finished at the top of his law school class. He finished near the bottom. He had to drop out of the 1988 presidential race due to plagiarism. He keeps saying he was arrested during civil rights protests. He said he was arrested trying to see Nelson Mandela. He insists inflation is at or near zero percent. He says we’re not in a recession. And he says the border is closed. Yet, fact-checkers either ignore the lies or try to defend them,” Concha said.

Fox News contributor Deroy Murdoch summed up the continuing barrage of falsehoods nicely, telling Fox News, “Joe Biden frequently recounts stories about phantom Amtrak conductors, imaginary residential infernos, and baseball glory that he never achieved.”

“Biden could invent these non-events to make himself look good. In that case, he is a pathological liar. But, even worse, maybe he really believes that these non-events actually took place,” he asserted. “If so, then he is living a life of total fantasy. Liar or fabulist? The American people need neither in the White House. Joe Biden cannot be replaced as Commander-in-Chief soon enough.”
