Biden: The Great Pinocchio King?

AMAC exclusive – By Claire Brighn

President Biden lie

After Joe Biden’s decades-long political career marred by plagiarism, dubious claims of being arrested during the Civil Rights Movement, dubbing himself a full-fledged college professor despite never teaching a college course, and a host of other misleading and outright false statements, Americans should perhaps be unsurprised that Biden’s presidency has been defined by one lie after another. But as the many crises plaguing the country continue to worsen and Democrats’ prospects in November grow ever direr, these lies and deceptions have only grown more egregious and dangerous. Here are just a few of Biden’s biggest whoppers.  

1. “When President Biden took office, millions were unemployed and there was no vaccine available.” – Biden White House Twitter, May 12, 2022

The most preposterous aspect of this lie is that Biden himself received the vaccine before he took office – as did former President Trump, whose Operation Warp Speed delivered multiple COVID-19 vaccines in record time. Even Dr. Fauci told Jake Tapper of the claim, “I just can’t explain it.” The assertion is so blatantly false that even CNN fact-checked it, noting that by the time Biden came into office, roughly 19 million people had received at least one vaccine dose, according to CDC data.

2. “The first cause of inflation is a once-in-a-century pandemic…And this year we have a second cause — a second cause: Mr. Putin’s war in Ukraine.” – May 10, 2022

Even a cursory glance at economic data over the past two years shows inflation was on the upward trend long before Putin invaded Ukraine. And COVID-19 is hardly to blame – even liberal economists cite the trillions in spending passed by Democrats in Congress and signed into law by Biden (most notably the $1.9 trillion ostensibly marked for “COVID relief”) as the primary cause of rising inflation. On December 1 of last year, with CPI surging, Treasury Secretary Yellen conceded in a hearing that the $1.9 trillion “did boost demand, and that is one of several factors that are involved in inflation.” Olivier Blanchard, former IMF chief, had also previously warned that the $1.9 trillion “could overheat the economy so badly as to be counterproductive.” A recent Morgan Stanley report confirms this widely held prediction, saying that despite an economy already recovering from the pandemic at the time, “the [$1.9 trillion stimulus package] was what turbocharged consumption and drove inflation to 40-year highs.”

3. “After their massive tax giveaway to the super-wealthy and giant corporations in 2017, Congressional Republicans now want to raise taxes on middle class families.” – April 18, 2022

Recently, Biden has repeatedly made the false claim that Congressional Republicans want to raise taxes. Specifically, he is referring to one sentence on page 34 of Senator Rick Scott’s 11-point plan, which reads that “all Americans should pay some income tax to have skin in the game, even if a small amount.” But Scott’s plan is by no means the official Republican platform, and many Republicans have distanced themselves from that particular aspect of the plan. Moreover, Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell specifically rejected this proposal. For Biden to consistently assert that the Republican Party agenda writ large is to raise taxes on all Americans is disingenuous and ignores decades of history of Republicans lowering taxes while Democrats raise them. Fittingly and in a moment of rare honesty from the legacy media, this lie has earned Biden “Three Pinocchio’s (Barely Missing Four)” from The Washington Post.

4. “The first year of my presidency, the first year, I reduced the deficit, literally, by $350 billion dollars. First year.”May 11, 2022

In another variation of this lie, Biden also said, “Let me remind you, I reduced the federal deficit.” His claim to be a great deficit reducer immediately brought him a scathing fact-check from CNN’s typically partisan “fact checker” Daniel Dale.

While the deficit in 2021 was indeed reduced, it was still much higher than projected before Biden’s $1.9 trillion stimulus was passed. According to the Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget, “the main source of falling deficits is the expiration of most COVID relief.” And according to the Congressional Budget Office, had no new policy been enacted by Biden, the fiscal 2021 budget would have declined by $870 billion. Thus, Biden’s bogus claim of reducing the deficit hinges totally on artificial meaning and, according to Marc Goldwein of the Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget, “is almost bizarro world.”

On the other hand, Biden’s Build Back Better agenda would add $375 billion to the deficit, according to the Congressional Budget Office.

5. “And under my plan, nobody — let me say this again — nobody earning less than $400,000 a year will pay an additional penny in new taxes.” – March 1, 2022 

Biden’s entire tax and spend plan is rooted in deception and the lie that it won’t actually raise taxes. Biden claimed on the campaign trail that he would put “truth over lies” and that “anyone making less than $400,000” would not see a “penny” more in taxes. But even according to the left-leaning Tax Policy Center, his Build Back Better plan would raise taxes on up to 30% of middle class families. Not to mention, the runaway inflation directly caused by Biden’s big-spending policies is a massive hidden tax that disproportionately affects the poorest Americans.

6. “I grew up in a family where the price at the pump was felt in the kitchen.” – February 15, 2022

Around the time rising gas and groceries prices began to converge, Biden began telling this lie. At first it was missed by many on the left and the right. However, a quick look at history soon revealed that Biden’s sob story about the “price at the pump” was simply untrue – gas prices were totally flat during his childhood. As American families today face stretched budgets and trade-offs between gas or groceries thanks to his disastrous policies, this lie becomes ever-more callous and tone deaf.

7. “No one” that Biden “can recall” advised him against his Afghanistan withdrawal plan – August 2021

Despite 13 U.S. service members killed and others horrifically injured, hundreds of Americans left behind, and billions worth of U.S. military equipment abandoned, Biden immediately called the Afghanistan withdrawal a “success.” In fact, his administration has maintained this ever since, with his National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan saying in December 2021 that the U.S. “safely and effectively drew down” from Afghanistan.

But after the botched withdrawal, both Secretary Lloyd Austin and General Mark Milley testified that they had, in fact, advised against Biden’s withdrawal timeline and recommended leaving residual forces. Moreover, though Biden claimed that the intelligence community in June and July did not indicate Afghanistan would collapse to the Taliban, intelligence reports did, in fact, warn of a possible “domino effect” should U.S. forces leave.

For decades, Joe Biden has been the poster child of a lying and insincere career politican. But now, with an inflationary downturn, the economy shrinking, and Americans feeling pessimistic and anxious about the direction of the country, a Rubicon seems to have been crossed, and Biden’s credibility has been totally destroyed.

Why a question mark? There are enough absolute proofs that Joe Biden has always been a serial liar to make the title a statement of fact. Worse than Biden’s lies is the way he allows Socialists and Communists to dictate his every move.

… felony elder abuse, Joe Biden’s not lying. It’s a charade. An infirm geriatric with dementia, President Biden’s being told what to say by whacked-out Washington DC democrats, hiding behind the curtain –

Bless their hearts, outsmarted by Washington DC democrats only slightly more intelligent, the Republican people honestly believe Joseph Biden’s the most popular president in U.S. history, that he got 81 million votes never having had to campaign, and that he’s so popular, he got more votes in cities than people who actually live there. The Republican people are so stupid, they can’t see through the Democrats’ charade. They think it’s really Joseph Biden, behind all these pernicious policies destroying America.

Either Republicans are drop-dead stupid, as you contend, or they’re indifferent, afraid of sticking their necks out. Heads are buried in the sand, knowingly certifyinf a rigged election strongly suggests, personality flaws, that Washington DC Republicans are cowards; they lack for character.

Lenin referred to people like this as “useful idiots”. Doesn’t matter what “party” they think they are, they are not smart enough to think for themselves and realize they are being led to total disaster so that the elites can continue to increase their wealth and power. Just the opposite of what our founders intended!

His own fantasies are bad enough, but with his serious mental decline, I doubt he is aware of the even more serious things he is being given to read from the teleprompter. Make no mistake about it, Joe Biden is being used as a front by the people behind the curtain to push through the final stage of the end of our Constitutional Republic and immersion into the New World Order of global government. Fantasy? NO, it’s been in the works in the U.S. since the first steps emerged during the Wilson administration – The 16th and 17th Amendments to the Constitution. Based on the Fabian Society’s agenda to “destroy the old world and reforge it in the new vision of our own”, Progressives, Socialists, and Communists have used the blueprint in their agendas. Today, they have allied and are using every tool they can, to scare and control public thoughts and actions toward accepting total control over daily life. The environmental and health segments are the biggest weapons they now are using to gain control.

The U.S. public first heard: “There’s going to be a NEW WORLD ORDER” from George H.W. Bush shortly after he took office in 1989 and it caused a panic in the NWO organization that their cover had been exposed. Needless to say, Bush was replaced by Clinton, followed by Bush 2, and Obama, all of whom were NWO picks. Biden just recently reuttered the claim of “The New World Order is coming”. The end time we are now witnessing was supposed to take place after the 2016 election, but another Reagan style surprise upended the plans when Donald Trump won the election in spite of the election being fixed in favor of Hillary. They just didn’t want to appear to have gone overboard in ballot box stuffing and they came up short. Along comes election time 2020 and the machine doesn’t care how badly they openly commit fraud and they barely keep Trump from being reelected. Even now with all of the fraud being exposed, there has been no serious effort to decertify the election. Is it because of threats or bribes or both? ,

Biden (and Harris) were an after thought. The sole purpose of the massive election fraud (finally exposed by 2000 Mules) was to keep DT from getting elected. They had success there, but missed how hugh and powerful the executive branch is. Biden was probably told to do the opposite of what DT did, where, in fact, if he did nothing at all we would be fine. Now we are stuck with him, and the only answer is coming up in November. We must take over both the House and Senate.

He may not recognize the truth are falseness of his claims. That is why he needs handlers watching him all of the time.

This is so very sad. Age and senility cause these kind of claims too. They do not remember what is true and what is false. And often they make up unbelievable stories. This kind of a person cannot be the President of the United States. How everyone surrounding him and the Democrat party can allow this is beyond me. This is a clear case of Senior Abuse! They should all be ashamed of themselves. But without him, the money does not roll in and deals with Ukraine and China do not happen.

This is so dangerous. It is no wonder that Putin is doing what he is doing. And it gives the other countries, China especially, the confidence to do what hey want to do in the world.

My 80 year old uncle told me once, that he watched them carrying his leg down the hall at the hospital. He was diabetic. I immediately thought they had amputated it. No. He said they put it back on! He also told my dad that this young guy was stealing from our garden. The young guy was me!!!

My wife’s grandma was the same way. We went to see her when she was very old. She told my wife that the other girl with us was a thief and stealing things from her. She was my wife’s sister. She did not recognize her.

It fascinates and horrifies me that Biden has even one supporter left.

Who are those people that are believing this stuff and honoring the guy for…..what? :his dishonesty, his hypocrisy, his grifting, his cheating, his lying from childhood it seems, his stupidity, his incompetence his aligning himself with some of the worst Senators and segregationists, his total lack or morals and ethics although he touts his Catholicism as if he actually follows more than the ceremonious within it, his greed, his lusting for the presidency that he is too incompetent to handle, etc..

I am personally related (oh wow, it really nauseates me to say that) to someone who voted for and still believes this this “presidential” sack of ___.
This person, I am fairly confident in this statement, herself started lying with the first words out of her mouth. I know for a fact that she has never told the truth, ever. Least ways not around me nor any time that I have known her to speak. When someone lies that much they become beyond proficient and most all people believe what the liver says, because that is all she says.
This is exactly like bumbo that has been un-rightfully sat in the seat of the president of the United States of America, the “center” of the free world.
When bumbo speaks I am not surprised nor shocked that nothing but lies comes out. It is fairly likely that bumbo was born a liar (as the relation that I describe here) and his first words were lies (which I am sure his parents got all excited about because he was shoeing such ingenuity making up ideas).

There are many people like that in this world. They will lie straight to your face and not bat an eye.

My sister was habitual liar. But what is sad, is that so many people believed and revered her!!!!!!!!!!!!

She was not very bright, claiming to be a nurse graduate when she did not complete any courses that I know of.

She also claimed having my father’s power of attorney, even though no papers were ever signed. The one I had signed and notorized was destroyed by someone, most likely her. Again showing her ignorance. She did not realize that just tearing up a copy of the order did not revoke it. But she had my father moved to a different county hospital when he had a stroke, professing that she had power of attorney.

We must pray for these people. They definitely will need help getting into heaven. The Commandment about bearing false witness comes to mind.
