President Biden has gotten away with twisting the truth and fooling people his entire career. Now the habit has infected its entire administration.
So many lies are being spread these days that it’s impossible to keep up.
It’s not just the silly, high-handed exaggerations that upset the Trump-hating media over the last tenure.
It is often questions about life and death that have a major impact on the future of this country.
Lie 1: The southern border is closed.
No, it’s intentionally wide open, and yet Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas and Vice President Kamala Harris keep telling us: “The border is closed”.
Thanks largely to Fox News, we can see with our own eyes that illegal immigrants from around the world are pouring from Mexico under the watchful eyes of border guards ordered to withdraw.
“The borders are not open,” Mayorkas said last week. “If you enter the United States illegally, you will be sent back. Your trip will not be successful. ”
Oh yes, Pinocchio?
After a week of walling by DHS and the White House press office, Mayorkas admitted to Fox News on Sunday that most of the 17,400 illegal immigrants cleared under the Del Rio Bridge in Texas will remain in America.
He said 10,000 to 12,000 have already been released to the US to merge in the Shadows, and another 5,000 are currently being processed by the DHS, some of which are also being released.
So that’s a 80 to 97 percent success rate for the first 12,400 – good chances for the golden ticket to live in America.
Mayorkas enables what can only be viewed as a deliberate invasion. Its job is to hasten the secret movement of migrants out of sight and out of mind.
In Orwellian fashion, he covers up this violation of the law by changing the language: “We do not use the term illegal immigrants,” he told CNN on Sunday. “I actually did issue a policy. . . we use the term non-citizens. “
Lie 2: Border guards on horseback “whipped” Haitian migrants.
After trying to stop Fox News’ drone from filming the makeshift refugee camp under the Del Rio Bridge, the Biden government found it had a visual issue. The border police received permission to stop the flood of migrants crossing the Rio Grande.
They used horses as crowd control on the rocky river bank. If they hadn’t done so, Mayorkas would be unlikely to be able to clear the migrant camp by Friday, as Biden had directed.
Twitter activists used a picture of the operation to falsely accuse agents of tying the migrants with horse whips. What they said were whips, reins.
The government’s rush to pass judgment has been shameful. The agents have been released from active duty pending an investigation and horse patrols have been suspended, removing one of the last tools used to secure the border.
The TP compared the agents’ actions with “the worst moments in our history. . . in times of slavery. “Mayorkas implied that they were racist.
The president kept charging, using all the authority of his office to threaten the agents with dire consequences just for doing their job.
“It was horrible to see what you saw, to see how people were treated like that,” said Biden. “Horses run over them, people are buckled up. It’s outrageous. I promise you these people will pay. ”
Mayorkas denied that the president’s false and inflammatory claim that migrants were “buckled up” would affect the investigation into the agents.
But when asked about the use of “horse whips” at the White House press conference on Friday, he called it “terrible” and did not even try to correct the reporter’s misrepresentation on the reins.
Lie 3: We will not leave Afghanistan until all Americans are evacuated.
That’s what Joe Biden said 13 days before his self-imposed August 31 deadline.
“If there are any American citizens left, we’ll stay and get them all out,” he told ABC News’ George Stephanopoulos.
At least 100 Americans have been exposed, along with many other Afghan allies, and the FBI is now reportedly visiting veterans trying to keep the president’s word for him.
Lie 4: The August 29 drone attack in Kabul was a “just blow” against ISIS-K terrorists.
Not correct. Ten innocent civilians, including seven children, were killed.
The Pentagon lied and veiled for two weeks and only got clean after the New York Times released irrefutable video footage and eyewitness accounts of the tragic reality.
We have still not been given the identity of the victims of an earlier drone attack on August 27th. We should accept the Pentagon’s word that bad guys have been killed, just as we should believe Biden when he tells us the botched withdrawal from Afghanistan is an “extraordinary success”.
Lie 5: Hunter Biden’s laptop is “Russian disinformation”.
White House press secretary Jen Psaki was back on Friday with that rooster-and-bull story.
When asked by Fox News’ Peter Doocy whether the White House was still standing by its claim that incriminating material was placed on the presidential son’s abandoned laptop by the Russians, Psaki upheld the fiction.
“I think it’s common knowledge. . . that there was a wide range of Russian disinformation in 2020. ”
Accurate stories of the Biden family’s misconduct based on files from the laptop – which The Post has been posting regularly since October – never had anything to do with Russians. That was just the Biden campaign to discredit them, with the help of former CIA chief John Brennan and 50 other shameful former intelligence officials whose false claims of a Russian conspiracy served as a fig leaf to censor and censor the Post’s reporting convict.
Lie 6: The cost of the Democrats’ $ 3.5 trillion Welfare Act is “zero” dollars.
Biden said this on Friday when he was talking about killing imaginary “trillionaires” with a mystery box bill that nobody has a clue about. “It’s a zero price for the debt. . . It will be zero, zero, ”he said.
There is no need to do the math. $ 3.5 trillion is not zero
With so many lies, it’s no wonder Biden’s approval rating has dropped from 61 percent in January to 37 percent in September, according to a Gallup poll of independent voters.
Gaslighting only goes so far. It’s a lesson many politicians have learned the hard way. Underestimate the intelligence of voters at your own risk.
