Tara Reade Is a Liar

As I said in my last article on the subject, this is not a fact. This is a strong conclusion based on an enormous amount of evidence. Since I wrote that last article, more evidence has emerged that paints Reade as a liar with a history of lying, manipulation and fraudulent behavior. When I taught middle school, we always had at least one serial liar in each class. A typical encounter: they would run to me during homeroom, crying and complaining that Mean Little Johnny pushed them on the bus. By the time I could get the vice principal in to hear the story, they were then claiming that Johnny had punched them in the head. By the time they got to the office to make a formal complaint, they would say that Johnny had them on the floor of the bus, beating, kicking and stomping them. When they were told that no one else saw any of this on the bus, or that we found it odd that their story had changed so drastically in the course of 30 minutes, the tantrum and tears would start. Everyone was against them. We all wanted them to be hurt. We were all on Mean Little Johnny’s side. And so forth. The parallels between Reade and the class liar/dramatist are clear. I might have believed the initial story — after all, Mean Little Johnny had pushed kids before. But I damn sure didn’t believe the escalated versions, especially after eyewitnesses verified they didn’t see any of the embellished allegations take place. And the drama and waterworks just confirmed what I already believed — that Sad Widdle Jenny (or Billy) was lying their little ass off. I don’t know what Tara Reade was like in middle school. I do have a better idea what she was like as a Biden staffer. From what I read, she was a poor staffer who was let go for incompetence (if not worse). PBS interviewed 74 former Biden staffers who worked with him during the time Reade worked on his staff. 62 of the ones interviewed were women. Most don’t remember Reade. The ones who do don’t remember anything about any sort of sexual harassment allegations (remember, the initial version of Reade’s story contains NO allegations of sexual misconduct). Biden: A Fair and Equitable Boss The reporters, Daniel Bush and Lisa Desjardins, describe Biden as “a demanding but fair and family-oriented boss, devoted to his home life in Delaware and committed to gender equality in his office. He was not on a list of ‘creepy’ male senators that female staffers told each other to avoid in the elevators on Capitol Hill.” The reporters continue: None of the people interviewed said that they had experienced sexual harassment, assault or misconduct by Biden. All said they never heard any rumors or allegations of Biden engaging in sexual misconduct, until the recent assault allegation made by Tara Reade. Former staffers said they believed Reade should be heard, and acknowledged that their experiences do not disprove her accusation. … Many said that her sexual assault allegation was at odds with their knowledge of Biden’s behavior toward women. … Many former Biden staffers said they believe Reade’s allegation is false. Fired for Poor Job Performance, Not for a Sexual Harassment Report One of the […]
