For Washington’s Democrat Party leadership lies are politics as usual. We can’t believe anything we hear. Liars govern America.
The lies, misrepresentations, disinformation, and propaganda from Democrats keep coming fast and loose. Here are the two most recent updates showcasing the lack of honesty from the party hacks governing our country:
September 9, 2021 update: thank Biden for finally admitting the truth about global warming.
September 4, 2021 update: liars governing America promote welfare so we can Build Back Better.
August 22, 2021 update: liar-in-chief Pelosi proves Democrats can’t be honest about anything.
August 29, 2021 update: Pelosi uses Supreme Court eviction moratorium to spread two more lies.
You can’t have a democracy based on feeding lies to the people. Instead, you have an authoritarian system where the people are manipulated by the liars in power. President Biden raised the issue on Tuesday:
We have to ask: Are you on the side of truth or lies; fact or fiction; justice or injustice; democracy or autocracy? That’s what it’s coming down to.1
He is correct, so why is his party and Biden himself so dishonest?
It’s 2021. Democrat Party liars govern America.
We knew the Biden presidency would be an unmitigated disaster, but Democrats are compounding the insult by deceiving the people to make sure they hold on to their popular support no matter how bad it gets. The Democratic leadership has no reason to care if their base doesn’t know the truth so they tell them the lies they want to hear.
House Democrats can’t tell the truth
After the January 6, 2021 “Insurrection” Nancy Pelosi called Capitol Hill a temple of democracy.2 Forget for the moment that it’s only a temple for elitists and not the people our democracy is supposed to be about. If it was, we would have some say in what goes on there and Democrats would not defile our temple by refusing to tell the truth.
This neglect of the truth makes prominent House Democrats worse than anything the left can dream up to criticize Republicans for. There is a fine line between exaggeration, obfuscation, misrepresentation, and falsehoods. Democrats stomped across it in January and never looked back.
At some point in her downward spiral from public servant to House Liar-in-Chief Speaker Nancy Pelosi decided that Americans don’t deserve the truth:
Every single House Republican voted to defund the Capitol Police.3
This is a lie. Anyone who knows anything about the Republican Party knows it’s a lie. Bullying majority Democrats voted to spend $1.9 billion that includes turning their temple of democracy into a fortress. Republicans won’t agree. That’s not the same thing as defunding the Capitol Police, but this comes from a party that supported demands to defund local police departments throughout the 2020 election cycle and last summer’s Black Lives Matter race riots. Now they need to dispel the truth and get back in the good graces of police unions and voters unfortunate enough to live in deadly Democrat-run cities. Since their agenda is decidedly anti law-enforcement, lies are all they have in their trick bag:
Sadly, these attacks on the courageous officers who defended the Capitol are nothing new. For months, McCarthy and Republicans have attacked the police. They refuse to shake their hands.4
“They refuse to shake their hands” is another lie. There is no “they.” Pelosi is referring to a news story that Georgia Rep. Andrew Clyde did not shake hands with a hospitalized Capitol officer. In fact, according to The Hill the Senate GOP wants emergency funding for the Capitol Police and the National Guard.
The truth didn’t deter Pelosi from claiming that Republicans want to defund local police departments, too.5 That particular lie has been making the rounds and has even been debunked by media outlets including the Washington Post.
Democrats forget 9/11
On the Senate side Dick Durbin (D-IL) inflamed the discourse with a popular Democrat Party falsehood that ignores 9/11 and claims the January 6 riot was the greatest attack on American democracy since the Civil War:
While there should have been 100 votes in the Senate last month for thoroughly investigating the worst attack on our democracy since the Civil War, Republican Senators voted against moving to even consider the creation of a bipartisan commission.6
Is Durbin insinuating that attacks on our democracy can only come from the American people, or was he just repeating the president’s words after Biden declared January 6 was:
The worst attack on our democracy since the Civil War.7
Democrats recite this with absolutely no respect or regard for the thousands of Americans who died during the worst terrorist attack in American history. Why don’t they include 9/11? Because those 3,000 lives don’t advance the Democrat Party’s cause. Besides, the Civil War opens the door to their anti-American rhetoric about racism. That’s an opportunity too good to pass up.
Are you ignorant? They think you are.
Do the American people realize that lies are policy for Democrats because they have no respect for the intelligence of their base? Remember, these are the same people Vice President Kamala Harris warned would be disenfranchised if they lived in rural America and were tasked with copying their IDs to prove they are eligible to vote.
Perhaps Democrats’ confidence in the innate stupidity of their flock is the reason Pelosi and the House Democratic leadership don’t even make a minimal effort to lie well. Instead, they expect their voters to trust them when they promise:
Our work is not complete until every person is honored with respect, dignity, and justice.8
That’s not a lie per se, even though we know it isn’t true. They certainly don’t treat all Americans with respect unless you regard being called a thief a compliment:
As Republicans throughout the country work night and day to make it harder to vote and easier to steal an election, the time has come to tackle the voter suppression epidemic.9
Assistant Speaker Katherine Clark (D-CT) was at least honest about what these three words represent to Democrats after the Juneteenth National Independence Day became law:
Now, we must follow this action with further progress by protecting voting rights, reimagining policing, and pursuing reparations for African Americans. Our work is not complete until every person is honored with respect, dignity, and justice.10
What respect, dignity, and justice really mean is paying a bribe based on a woke fabrication about racism in America.
A president who lies does not Build Back Better
While his party accuses Republicans of doing what Democrats plan to do with H.R. 1, Biden lied about protecting the “sacred, constitutional right to vote” during a speech at the National Constitution Center in Philadelphia:
The 21st century Jim Crow assault is real. It’s unrelenting, and we’re going to challenge it vigorously.11
He compared state legislatures whose actions reflect the will of the people to protect the vote to the Democratic tale of Russian election interference and again suggested that Americans are the threat:
We’ve got to shore up our election system and address the threats of election subversion, not just from abroad — which I spent time with Putin talking about — but from home. From home.12
Falsely portraying Americans as the enemy is a Biden White House mainstay. While this is just a game for Democrats in power who spare no effort at turning Americans against our country they fail to consider that at some point there is no going back. Sooner or later the extremity of their lies and anti-American dialogue will take us to places no American want to go. Democrats repeatedly talk about the civil war. This is where their false propaganda is leading the country.
Kamala Harris is a liar, too
Our habitually snickering vice president shares Pelosi’s problem with the truth:
The President and I are absolutely committed to ensuring that our immigration system is orderly and humane. And I do believe that we are making progress in that regard.13
Perhaps calling this a lie is too harsh? Am I misinterpreting what an orderly, humane immigration system looks like or did Harris never check the numbers? She feinted with “we inherited a tough situation” and then tossed out this whopper:
And in five months, we’ve made progress.14
If the Biden administration’s goal is admitting as many illegals as can cross the border then they have made great progress. This graphic from Customs and Border Protection should help to clarify what progress means to Harris:
CBP just reported a 5% increase in attempted border entries in June 2021 compared to May 2021.15
Criticizing the administration’s disastrous open border policy only elicits charges of xenophobia and racism. Race rules the discourse in Washington no matter what the issue is. Harris takes credit for being the first woman and first black American to be vice president.16 Despite that distinction she also declares:
Black Americans — and Black men, in particular — have been treated, throughout the course of our history, as less than human.17
Yet we also had a black president for eight years, long before the BLM race riots. Now, for better or worse, Harris is ensconced in the vice president’s office.
Biden tells the truth about lying
At least Joe Biden recognizes we are at risk from all the lying:
For, make no mistake, bullies and merchants of fear and peddlers of lies are threatening the very foundation of our country.18
He is correct, so stop it. The American people deserve better, even those who are foolish enough to put liars in charge of our government.
UPDATE July 18, 2021: Jeffries tells the truth?
In a stunning moment of complete honesty Congressman Hakeem Jeffries (D-NY) told the truth while discussing American Rescue Plan’s child tax credit payments in a CNN interview:
And President Biden and the Democrats were very clear: when we emerge from this pandemic, we’re not going to go back to normal.19
That’s the kind of honesty the American people deserve and expect. The American Rescue Plan’s child tax credit doles out payments to families making up to $150,000 per couple, $112,500 for head of household or $75,000 for single tax filers.20
That’s incredibly generous of Democrats. We’re already on the path to not going back to normal.
Do these families need additional income from the government? It doesn’t matter anymore than it mattered if everyone receiving COVID relief payments was still working. On one hand it makes sense because they money is ours. On the other, the rampant spending of trillions spells disaster down the road. We could use a little more honesty about that and the tax increases we have to assume are in the works to take it all back, but for now kudos to Rep. Jeffries for his honesty. America is not going back to normal if Democrats have anything to say about it.
UPDATE July 25, 2021: rejecting Jordan and Banks makes Pelosi a liar
Whether she is comparing January 6 to the Civil War or the War of 1812, House Liar-in-Chief Nancy Pelosi’s overblown rhetoric adds false gravity to her January 6 anti-Republican witch hunt. This was from her July 23, 2021 “Dear Colleague” press release:
We cannot escape history. We of this Congress and this administration will be remembered in spite of ourselves. No personal significance, or insignificance, can spare one or another of us. The fiery trial through which we pass will light us down, in honor or dishonor, to the latest generation.21
No, Pelosi didn’t say that. In a fit of arrogance she resorted to quoting Abraham Lincoln even though the only Civil War on the horizon is the conflict Democrats are hard at work creating.
Pelosi is no Abraham Lincoln. Her goal is much simpler:
Now, our imperative must be to find the truth.22
That would be a noble goal if the truth meant something to the speaker. It doesn’t.
Of the committee’s conduct Pelosi insists:
We must do so in a way that retains the trust of the American people in the proceedings, so that they will have confidence in the truth that emerges.23
How did she go about earning that trust last week? She rejected Republicans Jim Jordan (R-OH) and Jim Banks (R-IN) out of “respect for the integrity of the investigation” and “insistence on the truth.”24
We already know what the results of her committee will be and so does Pelosi. She made those results even more certain by rejecting Jordan and Banks while greenlighting GOP turncoat Liz Cheney (R?-WY) and suggesting that RINO Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R?-IL) might be another worthwhile bipartisan addition. Kinzinger’s views on the commission sound like they were written by Pelosi:
We need a full accounting of what happened on January 6, 2021—we need answers on who was involved in the insurrection and who played a role in orchestrating it. We need transparency and truth.25
Pelosi’s hatred of Donald Trump and her manipulation of her January 6 committee to guarantee a judgment to fit her party’s anti-Republican narrative ensure that truth will have no place in these proceedings. This makes it easier for the speaker to toss out the word “truth” as if it means something. It also allows her to make wholly unsubstantiated remarks like she did in the wake of the Trump-Russia hoax and her two failed impeachment efforts.
Pelosi’s hypocrisy is absolutely stunning as she does exactly what she falsely accused Trump of doing:
Again and again, Trump sells out our American democracy and values to pursue his own political interests.26
When she adds the word “bipartisan” to her commission we all know she is not telling the truth. If Pelosi was honest and really wanted to earn the trust of the American people as she claims she would have accepted Jordan and Banks. Instead, she opted for her own political interests and those of her party.
UPDATE July 26, 2021: Biden administration governs with lies and doesn’t do it well
With all the resources at the Biden administration’s disposal we should expect the lies to be clever or at least believable on occasion. They are not. The White House is not making even a meager attempt to cover up its falsehoods.
The administration knows there is nothing the American people can do about the president’s radical left agenda, so it’s curious why the White House bothers to lie. Most of us know or at least suspect the truth about Biden’s numerous failure, so there isn’t much point to lying.
One example should suffice. When the White House approved Temporary Protected Status for Haitians it added this to the press release:
The TPS designation does not benefit Haitian nationals attempting to enter the United States after May 21, 2021. The United States is continuing to strictly enforce existing immigration laws and border security measures.27
I’m sure if you asked Jen Psaki she would have an explanation about how we are strictly enforcing the law and protecting the border. That would be a lie, too.
UPDATE August 22, 2021: liar-in-chief Pelosi proves Democrats can’t be honest about anything
The speaker is literally panting to please Joe Biden by dumping $3.5 trillion on the heads of U.S. taxpayers. The lies are coming fast and hard as Democrats see the goal of ruining America’s economy in sight.
Governing with lies only works until you get what you want. Eventually you are found out when what you are doing fails miserably and hurts people. For proof, look at what just happened in Afghanistan. This is what happens when you govern with lies.
Pelosi has been around long enough to know this, so the speaker is adamant that Democrats force their new socialist budget resolution through Congress immediately to save the American people with “transformative, life-changing benefits:”
Any delay to passing the budget resolution threatens the timetable for delivering the historic progress and the transformative vision that Democrats share.28
When a politician tells you we can’t delay spending trillions, you know they are covering up.
Fortunately we don’t have to worry about the cost. Pelosi promises the bill is paid for:
Second, we will craft a bill that is paid for, including by increasing taxes on the wealthiest Americans and largest corporations, some of whom currently pay little to no federal income taxes. The House is exploring ways to advance tax fairness and enforcement in this bill that are widely popular, including 72 percent support for crackdowns on tax evasion by corporations and the wealthy.29
Did you catch that? The speaker says “we will craft a bill.” The press release was issued yesterday, but she wants to pass it now with no delay.
Pelosi insists her Democrat wish list of spending items receives “a broad and bipartisan level of public support throughout the country.”30 When you hear the word “bipartisan” slapped on a partisan bill you are being lied to. In her haste she may have forgotten to check in with Republican voters, business owners, people in the energy industry who don’t want to lose their jobs, and most important her congressional opposition that calls it a “Roadmap to Ruin for America’s Working Families.”31
That leads us to the biggest lie of all. Democrats continue to insist that families will see their taxes cut and won’t pay a dime. The middle and working classes always get socked with the consequences of tax increases that allegedly punish the wealthy for their benefit. Prices go up. That means paying more in sales tax, too. Businesses lay off workers. Wages are slashed. Democrats are also determined to destroy an entire sector of the economy, the energy industry, in favor of jobs created by a new sector that is more of an ideological pipe dream than reality.
That didn’t matter to Joe Biden when he cancelled the Keystone Pipeline and it won’t matter to his party now. They’ll continue to lie about the good jobs on the way while working Americans suffer from all the lies supporting this bill.
I’m going to cut Pelosi some slack on her claim that this $3.5 trillion is for the children. The reconciliation bill is crafted for the children of wealthy governing Democrats. They plan to pass this legislation alongside their voting rights scam to ensure they control America forever. The speaker doesn’t qualify whose “children” she is referring too, but anyone with a functioning non-liberal brain can figure that out.
UPDATE August 29, 2021: Pelosi uses Supreme Court eviction moratorium to spread two more lies
Oh, how Democrats hate the Supreme Court when they don’t get what they want. Speaker Nancy Pelosi vented her anger over the court’s refusal to say yes to Biden’s attempt at dragging out the eviction moratorium in two releases issued last Friday.
In each release Pelosi charged that the court’s decision was immoral, arbitrary, and cruel.32 She also claimed the decision puts families at risk from the COVID-19 delta variant:
The Court’s decision to block the new CDC eviction moratorium is immoral, putting families at risk of being put on the streets, and it is a serious public health threat, as the delta variant continues.33
We know this is not true. Being homeless on the street outside is a much safer refuge from the delta variant than being indoors. It’s safe to assume that many of the disadvantaged taking advantage of the eviction ban are already living in less than optimal indoor conditions. They certainly don’t have a massive, expensive freezer to store high end ice cream like their benefactor bragged about while the virus began to spread. Yes, being homeless is a terrible thing but if I was trying to avoid COVID-19 I’d much rather be outside.
That’s a cruel and arbitrary remark of course, but homelessness in Pelosi’s San Francisco is also cruel and arbitrary. In 2005 the speaker patted herself on the back for securing $17 million to fight homelessness in the city. What happened after that? 34 According to The Heritage Foundation, despite $1 billion annual spending on homelessness the number of homeless in Pelosi’s metropolis escalated by nearly one-third over the past ten years.35
San Francisco is another city ruined by Democrats who talk the talk of progressive maintenance for the disadvantaged with little to show for it except renewed demands to spend even more. That didn’t stop Pelosi from resorting to children in need, the last refuge of desperate Democrats:
As we all agree, eviction is a horror that no family should ever have to experience: cribs and personal belongings on the street, children in fear and distress and parents struggling to find basic shelter.36
Blaming the Supreme Court and the expiration of the eviction moratorium for homelessness is the same lie we hear about every other form of Democrat Party social spending. For now, anyone who is forced to leave their homes can at least rest easy knowing that Pelosi’s statement about the delta variant on the streets is not true. Neither is any suggestion that Pelosi or her party will do anything sustainable to fix the homeless problem in San Francisco or anywhere else.
UPDATE September 4, 2021: liars governing America promote welfare so we can Build Back Better
The August jobs report was a punch to the deluded Democrat Party gut. Those responsible for trying to torch our economy lied and babbled about accomplishments and great things to come, but we all know this is a stern warning about where they are leading us.
Pelosi: welfare means prosperity
For Nancy Pelosi fewer jobs means more spending “to ensure that the economic gains forged under President Biden”36 continue:
Today’s job report is further evidence of the need to Build Back Better for our economy.37
This makes no sense, of course. If Biden policies created economic gains we have no need to resurrect America’s welfare state.
With businesses trying to reopen under a deluge of restored state level mask mandates and more fear-mongering from Washington the Trump economic model that delivered massively for workers is the model to emulate, but this is the farthest thing from half-bright Democrat minds. Instead, Pelosi pushes for Build Back Better social programs that make not working, or at least not working very hard easier and more socially acceptable:
The Build Back Better Act will be transformational for families: cutting costs for child care, health care and prescription drugs, education and other priorities for families, delivering one of the largest tax cuts ever for workers and families and creating millions of good-paying jobs.38
Creating jobs isn’t the same thing as having jobs any more than shifting the cost of living for people who aren’t working to taxpayers who are creates prosperity. These are fundamental lies behind Build Back Better.
According to a report from the Committee to Unleash Prosperity, in 21 states and our nation’s capital we pay $25/hr. benefits to people who aren’t working. 19 states reward unemployment with benefits up to $100,000 annually for families with parents who don’t have jobs.39
In the midst of all this taxpayer-supported prosperity Pelosi traveled to Austin, Texas yesterday to push Biden’s agenda on a state that infuriated her party again with new abortion legislation. After her spiel about Build Back Better social spending this came last:
And the list goes on, workforce development and the rest.40
She credited Biden’s prescience:
He came into office with a vision to Build Back Better.41
A vision is not progress. Jobs that don’t exist are not progress. Handing out welfare and calling it prosperity is not progress, either. These are all lies.
Trump’s economy was progress. The liars who govern America will do everything in their power to make sure we don’t repeat it.
UPDATE September 9, 2021: White House admits what global warming is really about
I thought global warming was about the extinction of humanity. That’s why we don’t have time to think before we start spending trillions to rescue the planet for our kids.
President Biden had a different take during yesterday’s address honoring big labor:
And I made a promise, and I’ll keep it — that what we’re talking about here is: When you think of global warming, you think of jobs — jobs — all the jobs we’re going to create — making us, once again, the fastest-growing — we are now — the most competitive economy in the world.42
The only surprise is the unexpected honesty from a president who governs America with lies. Biden enthusiastically endorses policies that have a lot more to do with a one-party socialist takeover than the climate Armageddon his party warns is about to wipe us out. Unions will play a central role in helping his administration destroy our economy.
After that bit of truthfulness about climate change dishonesty, Biden fell back on this cherished lie about labor unions:
When unions win, workers across the board win. That’s a fact. Families win, community wins, America wins. We grow. And despite this, workers have been getting cut out of the deal for too long a time.43
If this is true, why has union membership been dying for years as America’s economy charges ahead and why did it flourish under Donald Trump, who supports right to work laws?
