President Biden Repeats Claim that His Son Died in Iraq

| November 2, 2022

Twice in a span of just a few weeks, President Biden claimed that his son Beau died in Iraq.  This time, the claim was made during a speech in Florida on Tuesday.

While President Joe Biden was discussing the ongoing “war in Iraq,” he claimed it was where his late son Beau died.

His exact words were:

“Inflation is a worldwide problem right now because of a war in Iraq and the impact on oil and what Russia’s doing, excuse me, the war in Ukraine. I’m thinking of Iraq because that’s where my son died,”

Biden offered up the aside as an excuse for the verbal slip. Although Beau Biden served in Iraq, he did not die there. He died in 2015 at Walter Reed National Medical Center in Maryland after fighting brain cancer. He was 46.

A few weeks ago, during a speech in Colorado, President Biden made the same claim.

During that speech, the president said:

“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. Imagine the courage, the daring, and the genuine sacrifice—genuine sacrifice they all made.”

I believe this has to do with President Biden believing that Beau Biden’s brain cancer was possibly contributed to by exposure to military burn pits in Iraq.  If that’s the case, it seems that to avoid any controversy Biden would do better by using the phrase “died as a result of his service in Iraq…”

I watched my grandmother go through this towards the end as her memory failed her. She would put together different facts/incidents and blend them into one memory. The way PIC Joe keeps mentioning his son…
“Gas prices are high…My son dead son Beau used to put gas in his car…”
“Climate change…My dead son Beau hated it when it rained…”
“Global war on terror…My son Beau died in Iraq six years after he left…”
The guy has lost his marbles. Almost everything he says has to be walked back. His frequent lies about his past that caught up to him in 3 previous WH runs is taking a hold of daily speech.
“Gas was $5 a gallon when I took over…” No, it was half and only reached $5 this summer until you started emptying the Strategic Oil Reserve…
“Crime is going down….” Not reporting doesn’t mean its down, but violent crime is skyrocketing
He also seems to have trouble with his own racism and the racism of the Democratic party of today and especially in the past.

Eff this lying coot


It would be easier to blame senility, and that certainly is part of the problem here, but he’s been lying about how members of his immediate family died for years. All for political purposes. In his sundown years his broken brain is just reverting to the same lying tactics he’s used all his life.


Heck, he’s been an ignorant, lying, blowhard for at least 30 years that I can remember. His college and law school records indicate it has been even longer.


He spent years slandering a dead man, saying that he drank his lunch and that was why he was in the fatal car accident that killed Biden’s wife and child. The problem is that the police said that alcohol was not a factor and that Biden’s wife had run a stop sign.

Biden has always been a pathological liar and embellisher, so this is no surprise.

He certainly fits the bill that “If his lips are moving, he’s lying.”


I’ll drop this here again, since it is evergreen:

“Biden is a notorious flapjaw. His vanity deludes him into believing that every word that drops from his mouth is minted in the golden currency of Pericles. Vanity is the most conspicuous characteristic of US Senators en bloc, nourished by deferential acolytes and often expressed in loutish sexual advances to staffers, interns and the like. On more than one occasion CounterPunch’s editors have listened to vivid accounts by the recipient of just such advances, this staffer of another senator being accosted by Biden in the well of the senate in the week immediately following his first wife’s fatal car accident.”

– Alexander Cockburn, CounterPunch, August 23, 2008. –


Never agreed with Cockburn on much, but like the stopped clock…

USMC Steve

Biden’s kid was an officer, thus he came NOWHERE near any burn pits other that to walk by one. You don’t get teh brain cancer from that.


And he was a JAG (lawyer).


Although they certainly get CABs for being 195m from an indirect fire impact, by golly!



Not necessarily true about Officers.

One burn pit I know of was constantly monitored by an Army Major/O4 Engineer Officer.

We agree with you that most likely, his brain cancer was not caused by the burn pit at Camp Victory.

Who’s next? Ted Kennedy? Perhaps his brain cancer was caused by his time with the US Army? *sarc*

Ole Joey Boy has some serious mental/emotional issues with Beau’s death. No wonder Hunter is messed up.

Don’t forget that for a while, Biden blamed his 1st wife’s and daughter’s death on a “Drunk Driver” which was 100% false.

He is the type of liar who believes in his own lies. Never takes responsibility for anything. Narcissism At Its Best.


The 3rd US involved war in Iraq ended in 2017. I don’t think there is another.

As I’ve commented a number of times this is not only sad but starting to become inhumane. Would they have made Reagan work when his mind started to go? No, and Biden is no Reagen, never was.

More curious about Missouri V. Biden case that, well due to the nature of the case proving itself, hasn’t been getting much play. Somebody should look into that.

1984, the digital version.


“Was it over when the Germans bombed Perl Harbor?”
Biden (1986)


Hell no! And it ain’t over now!

Skivvy Stacker

And then followed it up by invading Gettysburg! Those bastards.

Daisy Cutter

Maybe Beau Biden can be awarded a Burn Pit Purple Heart? It could happen.

Hack Stone

Be sure to thank Hunter Biden for his service this coming Veteran’s Day.




Being serious. Not sarc.

Does Hunter qualify in being labeled as a Veteran?

Need to research how much time he served to see if he is eligible for any VA Benefits.


Probably. Completed training/commisioning and made it to a unit. Came up hot on the piss test at his first drill and officially told about it, the confirmatory blood test, etc., etc. on the second, so he has “service” (albeit little). Likely got an Honorable separation (with re-enlistment bar on it) because that’d be quick, too.

Hunter Biden was too old to be commissioned when he was, but he magically got a waiver while his Daddy was VPOTUS. Happenstance? Coincidence?


He got a direct commission because of who his daddy was so he didn’t go to OCS. I don’t know that he was in long enough to get sent to any type of officer’s basic course for his duty assignment. It works a bit different in the reserve components compared to active duty. Probably given the chance to resign his commission “for the good of the service.” Point being, he may not have enough time to be considered a veteran.

Hack Stone

With all of the trouble it took to get waivers (age and prior drug use) to allow his direct commission, you would have thought that he would have laid off the coke until he could get the box checked as a military veteran to give his political aspirations some traction, but Hunter is gonna Hunter.


Currently it is 24 months or time cut short by a combat deployment wound. I have an old friend I went to High School with who was awarded the Purple Heart in Panama that falls in the later category. He joined after I did and was out well before I finished my enlistment.


“Hunter Biden, an ensign, [was] selected
for commission as a reserve officer through the Direct Commission Officer program in 2012, according to Cmdr. Ryan Perry, a Navy spokesman. He was commissioned into the Navy Reserve unit for Navy Public Affairs Support Element East in Norfolk, Va. Biden, who had no prior military experience, was one of six officers commissioned nationally into the Navy Reserve public affairs division.”

“Hunter Biden’s tenure in the U.S. Navy Reserve was a short one. In October 2014, the news broke that he had failed a drug test for cocaine in June 2013, and he was discharged in February 2014.”

So is he considered a “Veteran”?

Does he qualify for VA benefits?


No, he had to serve for at least 180 days to qualify for ordinary benefits.

Hack Stone

He probably dodged the Navy Relief Campaign contribution too.



No one will have an approved leave form until the 1SG sees a receipt for your AER “donation”.

And if it doesn’t come fast enough, GUESS WHO ends up with CQ Duty on Saturdays?


Like father, like son – stirrin’ up shyte!


Beau was in Iraq in 2009, almost 13 years ago.

He passed away in 2015, almost 7 years ago.

Ole Brandon Boy has yet to take a cognitive test.

Wonder why?


He was “top of mind.” Beau was top of mind. Top of mind. As I said, top of mind.


‘Ultra dark MAGA killed my son’ — Usurper-in-Puppet

During that same appearance, Joe Biden said that he spoke to the man who developed insulin.


This is getting worse and worse and worse…😱

Forrest Bondurant

So Biden is a time traveler now?

Had this recurring nonsense happened with a Republican president at the podium, there would be panels of “medical consultants” and physicians appearing on all MSM talk shows making a diagnosis of that president’s mental fitness, while politicians would be calling for a mental evaluation.

Shows like “The View” and “Morning Joe” would be losing their shit if it were anyone else.


The same media who flipped their lids over how Trump walked down a ramp and were talking about the 25 Amendment are strangely silent on Biden’s issues.

Hack Stone

The toughest job in the Biden – Harris Administration is the person who has to do the sign language interpretation for what Slow Joe and Camel Toe say.

Forrest Bondurant

They ought to find the guy who “interpreted” Obama’s speech during Nelson Mandela’s memorial service.

That guy was as fake as Biden and Harris.

Only Army Mom

Buckle in, rant loading.

I agree with everyone on Joe’s mental condition and performance being blatant evidence of advancing dementia.


I don’t believe it is the case where Beau is concerned. This is a Freudian slip.

Joe’s handlers are part of the pack that want to award Purple Hearts to everyone who died “as a result of” their service, by illness or suicide. Same group also wants there to be only one pin of recognition of death, i.e., gold star pins. They are erasing the distinction of being injured or killed doing the thing for which everyone trains – facing the enemy.

I met a Viet Nam Gold Star Widow, had the Gold Star pin, by a “Veterans Advocate”, at an event loaded with Dem politicians. She was being walked around and introduced to all and sundry.

Imagine my surprise when I find out her husband died the year before from Agent Orange, was a Blue Water vet and deserved the PH. “They” got her pin from e. bay.



Wow. Wow. Wow.

What an insult!

Did he REALLY pass away from “Agent Orange”?

We read something interesting:

“Do I need to prove contact with Agent Orange?”

“No. You don’t need to show that you came into contact with Agent Orange. Congress has provided that conditions on the list of presumptive diseases will be deemed to have been caused by contact with Agent Orange through service in the Republic of Vietnam, including offshore waters as defined by the Blue Water Navy Act of 2019.”

The Vet received a PH???



Sadly, there will always be folks who take advantage and misuse the VA system, mostly for $$$$.

Only Army Mom

Ninja – this was before the Blue Water presumptive conditions was passed in 2019. No, he didn’t get a PH, that was part of the complaint of “unfairness”, as she sported a purchased, Chinese made gold star pin (not capitalized on purpose).

Someone at that event let her and them know the GS Lapel Button is Congressionally controlled, i.e., can’t be bought, sold, etc., just like the MoH and PH.

“Then why are they for sale on the internet” was the reply. Can’t argue with that level of stupid.


Thank You, OAM, for the information.

Agree 100% what you wrote: “Can’t argue with that level of stupid.”



Or that level of chutzpah. Sheesh!


And I call bullshit on anyone claiming exposure to Agent Orange who did a float on a boat in the South China Sea. The defoliant was sprayed by the Air Force, not the Navy. There weren’t carrier-based aircraft spraying the stuff. I have peripheral neuropathy which may have been caused by my exposure, but I spent over a week moving through jungle that had been sprayed with a defoliant. Everything that was supposed to be green was brown. Shortly thereafter, I noticed that the scratches on my forearms didn’t heal like they had in the past. Instead, they became infected with jungle rot.



It floors us that the mentioned report states: “”You don’t need to show that you came into contact with Agent Orange. Congress has provided that conditions on the list of presumptive diseases will be deemed to have been caused by contact with Agent Orange through service in the Republic of Vietnam, including offshore waters as defined by the Blue Water Navy Act of 2019.”

Agent Orange presumptive conditions are:

AL amyloidosis
Chloracne, or other acne form disease consistent with chloracne
Chronic B-cell leukemias
Diabetes mellitus, Type 2
Ischemic heart disease
Hodgkin lymphoma, formerly known as Hodgkin’s disease
Non-Hodgkin lymphoma
Multiple myeloma
Parkinson’s disease
Peripheral neuropathy, early-onset
Porphyria cutanea tarda
Prostate cancer
Respiratory cancers (lung, bronchus, larynx or trachea)
Soft-tissue sarcoma (other than osteosar-coma, chondrosarcoma, Kaposi’s sarcoma, or mesothelioma).



You can get Diabetes mellitus, Type 2 from Agent Orange?

Last time we checked, here are reasons why some folks get Diabetes Mellitus, Type 2:

“You can develop type 2 diabetes at any age, even during childhood. However, type 2 diabetes occurs most often in middle-aged and older people. You are more likely to develop type 2 diabetes if you are age 45 or older, have a family history of diabetes, or are overweight or have obesity. Diabetes is more common in people who are African American, Hispanic/Latino, American Indian, Asian American, or Pacific Islander.”

“Physical inactivity and certain health problems such as high blood pressure affect your chances of developing type 2 diabetes.”

“Type 2 diabetes is caused by several factors, including overweight and obesity, not being physically active, insulin resistance and genes.”

Most folks we know who have diabetes ARE overweight and obese who sit on a couch watching TV while eating high caloric foods to include sweets.


Ol’ Poe has done this Agent Orange/cancer dance with the VA. First time was with throat cancer which was denied because Poe’s tumor was in his pharynx, an inch or so above the larynx, which is a presumptive association as ninja’s list shows. But to the bureaucrats at VA, that inch might as well have been a mile.

This, despite the fact that young Poe repeatedly participated in ground operations in defoliated terrain, physically exposed to Agent Orange residuals in the landscape, and where the only drinking water available was from contaminated streams and rivers. So sorry, GI…

However, Poe’s current bout with cancer, stage 4 prostate, is on the presumptive list, in spite of the fact that prostate cancer occurs fairly commonly in the general population without any exposure to contaminants.

Go figure… 🙄 


“Instead, they became infected with jungle rot”

If Agent Orange caused all that, I must have been swimming in it my entire tour. Every time I spent time in the jungle (as opposed to paddies & foothills), I rotted; even without being scratched.


How did you avoid being scratched? In every jungle AO I trudged through there seemed to be thorns on every third plant or bush. Plus, there were the razor sharp leaves of the elephant grass. I don’t know if there was causation with the defoliant; it was likely just a coincidence. The only thing that cured my jungle rot was not living in the jungle. Still have the faint scars on the backs of my hands. I even had a couple of men that had it so bad we sent them back to the fire base or the rear.

pookysgirl, WC wife

I doubt that I’m going to call myself anything other than widow when Pooky dies to suicide from the psych issues or cancer caused by working with radiation for six years. (Not being facetious, I really struggle with what the USAF did to him which was not combat-related.)


And now we have THIS…

As a reminder, Brian Sicknick suffered two strokes and died of natural causes the day after January 6th.

Another Individual In Denial. So Sad.

“Mother Of Capitol Police Officer Brian Sicknick Blames ‘People Like Kari Lake’ For His Death”

“An Anti-Trump group is targeting Kari Lake, the Republican nominee for governor of Arizona, with a new attack ad featuring the mother of U.S. Capitol Police Officer Brian Sicknick blaming those who questioned the results of the 2020 presidential election for her son’s death.”

“In the ad, Gladys Sicknick says, “My son died because of people like Kari Lake”.

Hack Stone

In the National Capital Region, opponents of Yesli Vega are running a commercial that five Capitol Police Officers died on January 6, 2021. Sure would like to know the names of those five officers.

Meanwhile, up in New Jersey, Democrats are running commercials about abortion (it’s always about abortion) saying that women have to undergo invasive sonogram examinations. Hack Stone is not a gynecologist, nor does he portray one on television, but isn’t a sonogram where the rub some lubricant on the belly of a woman, then place a device on said lubricant/jelly that displays an image of the fetus? If that is considered “invasive”, is applying sunscreen considered invasive?



We think this may be invasive…


He can’t help himself. He has a disease called MAP –minor attracted person. Or maybe he is just a YFAP-young female attracted person.


Larry, Moe, Curly, Shemp and Joe were the names. SAY THEIR NAMES!

…Wait, wrong protest….



Barium enemas are invasive.
Prostate exams (as most of us know) are invasive.
Non-routine prostate exams are even more invasive!

Sonograms?—only if you are smuggling drugs.


Some crooked doctor, maybe Dr. Jill herself, came up with the contention that the stress of the 1/6 events contributed to his strokes. Buy I suspect any honest neurologist or neurosurgeon would opine that the stress and increased blood pressure of the events, when they were happening, could have immediately contributed to the strokes, but not the following day, many hours later, when his blood pressure would have returned to normal.


There has been a high suicide rate among Capitol Police since 1/6. Suicide rates have always been high among police. If they are a military vet the number is 3-4X the rest of the population. But they have been trying to corelate the numbers to 1/6.

I’d say it is depressing time to be a cop anyway. High crime, no support from DA’s, attacks from Democratic political leaders, staff shortages, over work, defunded and under paid, unending protests, the streets are flooded with drugs and illegal aliens.

Gotta be depressing.


People who actually served with Beau Biden at the same base said there was no burn pit anywhere near that base. Moreover, why would a JAGoff have any reason to travel to a burn pit. So, Beau’s cancer had nothing to do with any burn pit.

This is nothing but another vain attempt to curry sympathy for this perpetual prevaricator. Only the teh stoopid will believe this fabulist falsehood.


Late question- how did Beau qualify to be treated at Walter Reed?


Ahhh…They got their wittle bitty feelings hurt…

“Liberals Rage After New York Times Reports On Biden’s ‘Verbal Fumbles’: ‘Trying To Destroy Us. One Annoyed Liberal College Professor Tweeted That The Times Should ‘Grow Up’ And Stop Pointing Out Biden Gaffes”

“A New York Times piece pointing out President Joe Biden’s gaffes from his Tuesday speech angered liberals on Twitter.”

“The Times chief White House correspondent Peter Baker detailed the gaffes from Biden’s speech in a short article, titled, “Biden Verbally Fumbles, Twice, During Campaign Trip in Florida.”

“In it, he wrote, “President Biden verbally fumbled during a campaign swing in Florida on Tuesday, confusing the American war in Iraq with the Russian war in Ukraine, and then he fumbled again while he tried to correct himself, misstating how his son Beau died in 2015.”


Yes, the NYT is trying to destroy the Democratic Party from within. The evil plan is known now!

Hilariously, earlier today, the WH released a statement on Twitter with Biden taking credit for the “largest COLA increase in 40 years”. While I rate that 100% true, people wanted to provide context, and did so. more like blaming him for the super high inflation and not actually doing that to increase COLA. Then the WH deleted the statement.

Sorry Dems, someone took away your favorite toy…..

“White House deletes tweet flagged by Twitter that credited Biden for Social Security payment increase. The tweet came down without explanation from the White House.”


I am sure I speak for all SS recipients when I express my extreme gratitude to Biden et al. for that munificent statutory cost of living increase. I just wish it had come before the Biden et al. inflation had taken its cut.


Pretty funny to those of us who remember how Gerald Ford was treated for his alleged clumsiness. Chevy Chase made an entire career (such as it was) out of it.


sniffy creepy has ALWAYS been a lying embellishing POS. Only difference now is he is a borderline senile, lying, embellishing POS.


Fuck him and his dead kid.
