Bidenís claim of brush with gun massacre questioned
washingtontimes.com ^ | 1/18/13 | Dave Boyer

Posted on 01/18/2013 1:22:36 PM PST by ColdOne

“I happened to be literally — probably, it turned out, to be a quarter of a mile [away] at an outing when I heard gunshots in the woods,” Mr. Biden recounted. “We didn’t know … we thought they were hunters.”

But a search of maps of the area in Lancaster County, Pa., shows the nearest golf course to the site of the shooting, Moccasin Run Golf Club, is about five miles away. Rodney King, the golf pro at Moccasin Run, said Friday he was working at the course on the day of the shooting and never saw Mr. Biden, who was then a U.S. senator.

“There’s a lot of things here that I find hard to believe,” Mr. King said. “I looked in my database, and he [Mr. Biden] is not in my database.”

Even if Mr. Biden had played at the course that day, Mr. King said, “It’s very far-fetched that he would have heard it.”

“I know he didn’t hear those gunshots,” Mr. King said. “They were inside the school. Even if they were outside, he wouldn’t have heard them.”

It had no sooner been reported than everyone (except the KoolAid drinking liberals) was calling him a liar.

There is another story out there somewhere that Biden claimed he ate in a diner that had closed years before the date he claimed to have been there.

Mr. King said. “I looked in my database, and he [Mr. Biden] is not in my database.”

How about Neil Kinnock?

Are you telling us that Biden was actually nearly on the site of the killing ~ waiting for the report when Lanza shot out the windows in the entry area?

That's beyond koinkydink ~ that's hardcore conspiracy theory grist!

So, Biden was “near” a mass shooting. Hillary dodged sniper fire. And Obama is a heterosexual male.

Can’t anyone in that administration tell the truth ONCE??

Yeah, I called the owner of the golf course this morning.

I posted the conversation here on another thread. Then sent the link to the Dave Boyer at Washington times. Guess he followed up and called the golf course too.

I’m guessing this refers to the Nickel Mines (Amish) School Massacre, in 2006:

Okay so maybe he misspoke.

But it’s true that both of his parents who were coal miners were killed when they were kids by school shooters.

And his grandparents were killed when they were kids by people pushing them in front of subways.

And his great grandparents died as kids in Hiroshima when the U.S. dropped nuclear bombs on them.

I understand.

I don’t understand why voters would continue to elect someone to the senate who completely lied about their family and plaigarized a speech. Or why someone would choose them as VP pick either.

“Perhaps Joe Biden has very sensitive ears.”

Well, he certainly has sensitive hearing. Can’t he hear the ‘dogwhistle’ racism in Republicans’ statements about gun control, global warming, abortion, the price of tea in China, etc?

Are there any photos of the “shot out” entryway of the school?

For a grand, one can purchase a used Nikon D200, a Tamron 200-500mm lens, and a Kenko 1.4 teleconverter... and take 1000mm portraits of the scene from a mile away.

Are we to believe there were no AP pros, with their $10K photo kits available to document anything here? Where’s that struggling photog looking for his first Pulitzer? He was front line at Kent State. WTF?

And just because the grainy vidio of the shotgun being pulled from mom’s trunk was released, are we to therefore to surmise (yup) that the Saiga was the only weapon in the trunk? And why were all the rules of evidence gathering ignored in the video? No latex gloves... eject a shotshell which no doubt has fingerprints out onto the ground... oh no, this was photo op, not serious investigative procedure. Why?

Is there a possibility that there was no video of the AR being removed from the trunk? BTW, where are the stills? WTF?

Just asking. I’m leary of being spoon fed by the complacent media wing of the politbureau. I’m not suggesting a conspiracy plot here. I am suggesting the contrived marriage of ruling class and MSM is conspiring against the populace.

One needs ask why?

That a confirmed liar and plagiarist is the Vice-president of the United States shows just how close the Apocalypse really is. The same media that trashed and ridiculed Dan Quaye and Sarah Palin and spewed vitriol against Dick Cheney, has continually given a free pass to a pathological liar.

He not only was nearly on the site of the killing he was also on the grassy knoll in Dallas and at the Malmedy massacre from which he narrowly escaped. But not before saving thousands of American lives & wounding F.M. Piper.
