Joe Biden Doubles Down on ‘Rapes Will Rise’ Claim After First Denying Initial On-Record Statement

Money quote from Biden:

“(If Republicans don’t pass this bill) Murder will continue to rise, rape will continue to rise, all crimes will continue to rise.”



  1. Typical stupid Biden quote. The current crop of Democrats has got to be the most inane and imbecilic ever.

    The statement is crap in two ways, first the bill was not create jobs and secondly crime has dropped *not* rose.

  3. It is nonsensical for several reasons, not the least of which is local law enforcement is a local concern not a federal one.

    However, beyond that, Biden’s “logic” should be thrown back at him. He should be asked how many more cops would be on the street if the money he as a senator voted to give to NPR, PBS, PP, etc was spent on cops. Or better yet how many cops could have been hired with the money given to Solyndra to pay off campaign donors?

    Lastly, how stupid is he to think cops prevent crimes? Sure it happens occasionally, but that is an exception. Majority of times cops are looking after the fact to catch perpetrators of crimes.
