Rule Five Biden’s SOTU Lies Friday

Yes, I watched Joe Biden giving the State of the Union speech last week, and even though I was a couple of shots of Pendleton whiskey in before the debacle started, I was still barely able to keep myself from throwing things at the screen.  The President poured out falsehoods like a manure spreader, and the Democrats in the House and Senate, led by the execrable Kamala Harris, stood and clapped like trained seals at every turn.

Here, as documented by The Federalist’s Shawn Fleetwood, are some of the more egregious of at least 20 lies the President spewed out.

Biden claimed former President Trump told Vladimir Putin, “Do whatever the hell you want,” regarding Russia’s invasion of Eastern Europe. But that’s not accurate.

The former president’s remarks came during a recent South Carolina rally, during which Trump recounted a story from when he was president and speaking with a NATO member. Trump purportedly told this state that he would withhold U.S. support if they didn’t pay their minimum defense spending obligations.

“‘You didn’t pay? You’re delinquent?’” Trump recalled telling the unidentified NATO member. “‘No, I would not protect you. In fact, I would encourage them to do whatever the hell they want. You gotta pay. You gotta pay your bills.’”

Misquoting or quoting out of context is an old political trick; one of my favorite examples is the landing of then-President George W. Bush on an aircraft carrier which was flying a banner saying “Mission Accomplished,” widely spun to mean that the U.S. mission in Mesopotamia was complete when it clearly was not; what that banner meant, of course, was that the carrier’s mission was accomplished, as in that their deployment was ending, and they were heading home.

Biden falsely claimed the Covid jabs are “now being used to help beat cancer.”

I have no idea where the befuddled President go that one. It’s patently false.  Hell, from what we’re learning now, these jabs shouldn’t even be being used to treat COVID.

Biden falsely claimed he “cut the federal deficit by over one trillion dollars” and has been “delivering real results in a fiscally responsible way.” Both claims are false. In fact, the U.S. national debt has risen by more than 6 trillion since Biden took office.

Anyone capable of looking at a balance sheet should be able to determine that this was an outright lie; but then, politicians in general traditionally aren’t very up on, well, numbers.

There’s a lot more where that came from; go, then, and read the whole thing.  But now, after a little over three years, nobody – nobody – should be surprised at the ease with which Joe Biden(‘s handlers) just roll out outright lies.

The one bright spot?  Speaker of the House Mike Johnson’s eye-rolls and facial expressions.  Check them out for yourselves; it’s worth it.
