Joe Biden’s Lies, Damned Lies, and Statistics

Biden is the grand master of “lying dog-faced pony soldiers.”

It was Mark Twain who, in 1907, popularized the assertion, “There are three kinds of lies: lies, damned lies, and statistics.” All three varieties have become rhetorical staples for today’s socialist Democrat Party leaders.

And none are more notorious than Joe Biden, who has become the grand master of “lying dog-faced pony soldiers.” He refined his ability to ply disinformation, what Russian apparatchiks call “dezinformatsiya,” under the wing of his puppeteer, Barack Obama.

Biden has devoted his entire career to perfecting his ability to distort the truth and effectively propagate BIG Lies. The Big Lie was defined by Adolf Hitler in his 1925 autobiography, Mein Kampf, as being so “colossal” that the public would be confident that no national leader “could have the impudence to distort the truth so infamously.”

Biden’s most fabulous lies of late are his claims to have “created jobs” and “reduced inflation.” Those infamous lies follow a familiar pattern.

In the case of jobs, for the record, Biden created nothing; the private sector creates jobs. But his claim that “we’re building an economy from the bottom up and the middle out by creating more jobs than any Administration in history” was, and remains, an insidious statistical lie. Tens of millions of Americans were forced out of their jobs by COVID shutdowns, as dictated by pandemic policy troll Anthony Fauci. When millions of people return to their jobs, that does not constitute “creating more jobs.”

In the case of inflation, Biden’s unmitigated malfeasance, most notably his so-called American Rescue Plan boondoggle, dropped an inflation bomb on America. That hit middle- and lower-income Americans hard, resulting in the largest decline in real wages in four decades and the biggest rise in food prices since 1979.

Slight declines in the rate of the surging inflation Biden set into motion do not constitute “inflation reduction.”

Of course, there are Biden’s bold-faced border lies, which were evident this week when he showed up for a photo op in Texas. His administration’s big border lie is oft repeated by his spokes-parrot, Karine Jean-Pierre: “The president has done more to secure the border and to deal with this issue of immigration than anybody else.”

Tell that to young Laken Riley, the latest victim of violent crime committed by an illegal alien thug. The assailant arrested in her murder is one of Biden’s border “catch-and-release” illegal immigrants.

Biden tried to brush off her murder in his State of the Union speech, incorrectly referring to her as “Lincoln Riley,” and fallaciously asserting that illegals don’t murder Americans at a higher rate than “legals.” That’s right, he referred to American citizens as “legals.”

For the record, his comparison of crimes committed by illegal aliens to crimes committed by American citizens is a diversionary smoke screen, and devoid of any data to make that comparison. More to the point, I noted here: “Not a single one of those violent assaults, rapes, and murders of American citizens would have occurred if those illegal aliens were not in the U.S. Not one.”

In fact, according to the ICE fiscal year 2023 report, agents arrested 73,822 noncitizens with criminal histories. Furthermore, according to ICE, those arrested “had 290,178 associated charges and convictions with an average of four per individual [including] 33,209 assaults; 4,390 sex and sexual assaults; 7,520 weapons offenses; 1,713 charges or convictions for homicide; and 1,655 kidnapping offenses.”

But to be clear, those 73,822 arrests are also just the tip of the proverbial iceberg. This data does not include the tens of thousands of state and local arrests of illegal aliens for crimes in which the citizenship status of the assailant is not identified. Nor does it include all the unsolved crimes with prime suspects being illegal aliens but who remain at large.

Remember when Biden declared: “It makes sense that no great nation can be in a position where they can’t control their borders. It matters how you control your borders … not just for immigration, but for drugs, terror, a whole range of other things.” And he then insisted, “I have been arguing for more protection at the borders.” Try that lie on the families of American citizens who have been victims of violent assault, rape and murder by illegal aliens.

Of course, controlling borders does make sense, but Biden said it before he began his slow decline into non compos mentis fog, and Demos decided the influx of illegal aliens would bolster their election prospects.

Biden also declared: “The second truism is that this nation is such that people in the country should have the first opportunity to be able to have jobs that pay well and have jobs that are decent…” But unbridled illegal immigration creates competition for jobs and puts signifiant downward pressure on wages,

And, remember when Biden criticized George W. Bush for “putting a higher value on tax cuts for the wealthy than he did on protecting the border”? He complained about “our conservative business friends” who plan to bring in workers on “work permits that will take away jobs of Americans,” and decried “the allowance of a significant increase — several hundred thousand people a year — to take regular jobs, particularly in the construction industry.”

Got that? “Several hundred thousand people a year” versus the NINE MILLION Biden has invited in.

Predictably, Biden and his hate-hustling cadres are now insisting that complaining about violent illegal immigrants is “racist.”

What you may have missed this week is Biden’s White House confab to announce he is the greatest crime fighter in history! Biden rolled out this BIG Lie: “Under the Biden-Harris Administration, there has been a significant decrease in crime — including one of the largest yearly declines in homicides ever.”

This deception follows the same pattern as his inflation reduction and job creation lies.

He and his Demos deliberately unleashed a record surge in violent crime nationwide just ahead of the 2020 election, advocating for their “Black Lives Matter” rioters and simultaneously promoting their defund police agenda. Then, when the murder rate data dropped by a marginal 1.7% from the dramatic increases, Biden declares, “Our plan is working.”

Let me reiterate: Joe Biden is the grand master of “lying dog-faced pony soldiers,” and his lies about jobs, inflation, immigration and crime will be on full display in his upcoming election year State of the Union address.
