Biden Claims He Frequented Black Church during CRM, But Nobody Remembers Him

President Joe Biden repeated questionable claims he attended a black church every morning throughout the civil rights movement during service honoring Martin Luther King Jr. on Sunday.

Biden has frequently claimed he attended services at a black church as a teenager, but church members in Wilmington don’t ever remember him attending.

On Sunday, Biden honored slain civil rights icon Dr. King on his 94th birthday during a speech at Ebenezer Baptist Church in Atlanta, Georgia.

“Let’s lay one thing to rest,” Biden said.

“I may be a practicing Catholic, but [I] used to go to 7:30 Mass every morning in high school and then in college before I went to the black church.”

‘Not a joke, Andy knows this,’ the president insisted, referencing former U.N. ambassador and former Southern Christian Leadership Conference executive director Andrew Young, who was in attendance,” Biden added.

“Andy, it’s so great to see you, man,’ Biden continued. ‘You’re one of the greatest we’ve ever had. Andy and I took on apartheid in South Africa and a whole lot else. They didn’t want to see him coming. But we used to – that’s when we would organize to march and to desegregate the city,” Biden continued.

Of course, Biden could not help using the word “insurrection” while condemning “racism and extremism” during his remarks.

“We would go sit in Reverend 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,” Biden said, referencing the prominent African-American Union Baptist Church in Wilmington.

But long-time church members raised questions over Biden’s account.

Some members claimed that while Biden befriended Rev. Herring as an adult, he did not attend their church as a teenager.

Herring’s long-time assistant Phyllis Drummond said he does not believe Biden attended in the 1960s.

“No, not at our building,” Drummond told the Washington Free Beacon in a 2020 interview. “I think he was probably in Claymont, [Del.,] [or] in Pennsylvania then.”

Biden repeated the claim he grew up in a black church in a separate speech on the campaign trail.

“When I was a teenager in Delaware, for real, I got involved in the civil rights movement,’ Biden said at Bethlehem Baptist Church in South Carolina in January 2020.

“I’d go to 8:00 Mass, then I’d go to Reverend Herring’s church where we’d meet in order to organize and figure where we were going to go, whether we were going to desegregate the Rialto movie theater or what we were going to do,” he said.

In pure gaffe style, Biden even made comments that contradicted the account.

When reporters questioned Biden’s claim in 1987 that he marched in the civil rights movement, he admitted he ‘wasn’t an activist and that his most significant experience with civil rights as a youth was when he worked at a swimming pool with mostly black customers.

The revelations Biden may have been exaggerating or outright lying about attending a black church and participating in the civil rights movement came simultaneously during the campaign when he was forced to admit his repeated claims about being arrested with Young in apartheid-era South Africa were untrue.

“I was never arrested, and I don’t think [Biden] was either,” Young said at the time.

“I guess I wasn’t arrested, I was stopped,” Biden said.

Not even worth discussing. If it comes out of Biden’s mouth, it’s a lie.

“I was born a poor black child”. Do you remember that line from the movie “The j**k”?

Dan Bongino Drops Bombshell with Stunning Revelation on Secret Service Failures Surrounding Tump Shooting Former Secret Service agent Dan Bongino made a stunning revelation about security failures which led to former president Donald Trump coming within inches of being assassinated. During an appearance on Donald Trump Jr.'s podcast "Triggered," Bongino revealed that the rooftop from which the failed Trump assassin Thomas Matthew Crooks fired shots, was supposed to be covered by law enforcement personnel. Bongino revealed he was told this by an "unimpeachable source" who was knowledgeable about the situation. "That post, according to my source, that roof was supposed to be a police post. It was supposed to be someone there," he said. "They're now making up excuses, saying the pitch of the roof… my source says to me, no one knows why the post didn't show up," Bongino revealed. He added that Secret Service Director Kim Cheatle has been instructed by Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas to "keep her mouth shut if she wants to remain in her post. Cheatle has refused to resign from her post following the aftermath of the assassination attempt. The Secret Service identified a high-profile security vulnerability in the building but failed to protect the rooftop. Moreover, security forces did not take notice of Crooks roughly 30 minutes before the shooting. One law enforcement asset even managed to snap a photo of the suspect, though he was not confronted. Cheatle attempted to explain why the rooftop wasn't covered. "That building in particular has a sloped roof at its highest point. And so, you know, there's a safety factor that would be considered there that we wouldn't want to put somebody up on a sloped roof," the Secret Service director said in a statement to ABC News. "And so, you know, the decision was made to secure the building, from inside." "They're not putting that out there. But if you get those site post logs and those police instructions and it was a post on there and they didn't show up and no one checked, someone could have got your dad killed," Bongino said. "Within millimeters." Bongino said he would be revealing more details on his podcast. ""You're telling me the best technology you have was deployed and you missed a shooter 130 yards? Say it was 200 yards," Bongino told Fox News. The Secret Service CS team, Pete, the counter-sniper team? And I'm not sure those two guys are Secret Service. We have to remember that we don't always, when we go to New York sometimes with high-level protectees we'll use NYPD ESU counter-sniper. So I'm not really sure." "Either way, they'd still be briefed in. The question we have to ask is, if that's the best technology we have, and we had a CS team up there with a shooter that, you know, we're trained out to a thousand yards in the Secret Service with the counter-sniper team. How did they miss someone at most, you know, one-fifth of the way there? It doesn't make any sense."
