The media is complicit in hiding President Joe Biden’s appalling behavior towards families of brave men and women who died protecting our nation. Cheryl Rex, mother of Lance Corporal Dylan Merola tells her experience:
“When [Joe Biden] approached me, his words to me were, ‘My wife, Jill, and I know how you feel. We lost our son as well and brought him home in a flag-draped coffin,’” said Rex. “My heart started beating faster and I started shaking, knowing that their son died from cancer and they were able to be by his side.”
National Review confirms, “Beau Biden did not die while serving overseas in Iraq. He died in Bethesda, Md., of brain cancer, six years after returning from deployment. The president keeps telling this lie. And it is a lie (or a delusion). There’s no spinning this one, despite even the best efforts by the president’s defenders, who allege he is merely using shorthand to claim Beau likely got cancer from the burn pits in Iraq.”
Rex’s story is one of many that were told last week as Gold Star family members spoke at a congressional forum arranged by Representative Darrell Issa (R., Calif.), held at the Escondido City Hall near Camp Pendleton Marine Corps Base in Southern California.
National Review highlights “the lack of coverage this past week for the on-the-record statements by family members of U.S. servicemen killed in the suicide-bombing attack at the Kabul airport during the Afghanistan withdrawal.”
“The Gold Star families this week would have been the lead story in every newsroom. Their testimony was, at the very least, newsworthy” National Review writes. Another example of unearthed stories was from a Gold Star mother who recounted that she had been lied to about the circumstances of her son’s death:
“I was told to my face he died on impact. That’s not true,” she said. “The only reason that I know this is because witnesses told me the truth.”
One father declared bitterly that his son had been sacrificed like a “pawn.”
