Big Lies at Biden’s First Presser

The president dishonestly answered questions about many issues yesterday.

How could you tell President Joe Biden was lying in his long-awaited first press conference? His mouth was open. No wonder he had to use cheat sheets to keep his story straight.

The president dishonestly addressed numerous topics yesterday, including immigration, COVID, election law, and the Senate filibuster to name a few. And on every single topic, he deflected, blamed, or outright lied. If only there were a few media “fact-checkers” to address the problem…

Bizarrely, Biden asserted, “I’ve not been able to unite the Congress, but I’ve been uniting the country.” Wrong. Creating a border crisis, forcing girls to compete against boys, injecting racism into everything, and spending $2 trillion on Democrat constituents is not unifying.

Our Mark Alexander covered immigration, so let’s get to some of the other deception.

COVID-19

The ChiCom Virus is one of Biden’s favorite lies, and he began with it Thursday — the only topic he addressed before taking questions. It was just two weeks ago that Biden gave a prime time address to falsely claim credit for Donald Trump’s vaccine achievements. Yesterday was no better. Biden spiked the football on reaching 100 million vaccine doses 42 days early, even though it was Trump, not Biden, who set us on that course. Some 22 million doses were distributed before Biden even walked into the Oval Office.

Biden has now set a new goal of 200 million shots in his first 100 days. This too is virtually certain given the pace of distribution. All he has to do is not bungle it.

HR 1

HR 1 and S 1, its Senate companion, is a Democrat attempt at a federal takeover of elections in order to make the shenanigans of 2020 permanent.

“What I’m worried about,” Biden explained, “is how un-American this whole initiative is. It’s sick. … This makes Jim Crowe look like Jim Eagle.” Huh? He was talking about Republican opposition to bulk-mail balloting, but the question he was asked had to do with both state Republican efforts at ensuring election integrity and his own party’s efforts to “pass voting rights legislation.” His condemning words would be more appropriately applied to Democrat legislation.

Democrats are lying about what ails our elections. Requiring voter ID and limiting access to mail-in ballots is not “Jim Crow.” In fact, Democrats are grossly patronizing minorities by arguing they’re somehow less capable of meeting basic standards of integrity. Democrats are trying to exacerbate the problems we all saw in 2020 and force them on every state and jurisdiction.

Senate Filibuster

“Filibuster. Filibuster,” Biden began to answer a question. “You know, with regard to the filibuster, I believe we should go back to a position on the filibuster that existed just when I came to the United States Senate 120 years ago [sic]. And that is that — it used to be required for the filibuster — and I had a card on this; I was going to give you the statistics, but you probably know them — that it used to be that, that from between 1917 to 1971 — the filibuster existed — there was [sic] a total of 58 motions to break a filibuster that whole time. Last year alone, there were five times that many. So it’s being abused in a gigantic way.”

Last year, Democrats were in the Senate minority.

He expressed frustration that his radical leftist agenda is facing trouble in a 50-50 Senate. “I’m a fairly practical guy. I want to get things done,” he said. Sadly, his dementia then kicked in: “The best way to get something done, if you — if you hold near and dear to you that you like to be able to — anyway…”

Asked about it again later, he affirmed that he thought the filibuster was “a relic of the Jim Crow era.”

He certainly didn’t think that in 2005 when as a senator he made a lengthy and passionate defense of the filibuster. Heck, he didn’t even think it 10 days ago, when Press Secretary Jen Psaki insisted that Biden preferred “not to make changes” to the filibuster but was “open to hearing” ideas. That doesn’t sound like it was a pressing racial issue last week.

On a final note, while Joe says he doesn’t “know if there will be a Republican Party” in 2024, “My plan is to run for reelection.” It’s okay to chuckle.
