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?
UPDATE September 20, 2021: Democrat liars governing America push amnesty for illegals as a moral and economic imperative
When the Democrat liars who govern America want to force something on us that we don’t need or want it becomes a moral and economic imperative. The more terrible the idea, the greater their insistence that we have no choice but to do what they say.
For example, Senator Ed Markey (D-MA) called the Green New Deal a “revolution” when he argued it was not only an imperative but our obligation, too:
We have the technology to do it. We have the economic imperative. We have the moral obligation. We just need the political will.44
Senator Bob Menendez (D-NJ) used the same argument when he claimed we have little choice but to pass the U.S. Citizenship Act:
While the work ahead will not be easy, we have a moral and economic imperative to get this done. After the former administration’s incessant attacks against immigrant communities, we cannot afford to kick the can down the road any longer.45
Chuck Schumer (D-NY) voiced his displeasure with the same words today after hopes were quashed of sneaking amnesty into his party’s reconciliation bill:
The American people understand that fixing our broken immigration system is a moral and economic imperative. America has always been that shining city on the hill that welcomes those pursuing the American Dream and our economy depends more than ever on immigrants.46
I think the American people understand very well what’s going on. The senator confused “our economy depends” with what he really means: Democrats depend. The Biden economy is rapidly swirling down the toilet with too-high gas prices, inflation, lackluster jobs creation, and rising prices. Now is a great time to appease their base with a completely irrelevant lie about mass amnesty while migrants continue to storm our border.
If there is a moral and economic imperative here it’s that Democrats should dedicate every effort to making life better for all Americans. Governing with lies about amnesty won’t and neither will legislation to grant a path to citizenship in Schumer’s shining city.
UPDATE September 26, 2021: governing Democrats deny pre-pandemic prosperity so they can destroy our economy once and for all
It’s been over 18 months since Democrats made the decision to use COVID to expand their control over our lives instead of ensuring the pandemic didn’t ruin America’s economy. The result? Businesses and lives were destroyed. Left-wing autocrats beat the American people down time after time with draconian restrictions that only applied to their subjects while America’s ruling elite enjoyed their affluent lives as usual. Now they say they want to help us.
Congress spent a lot of money to keep Americans afloat while Democrats destroyed their places of employment. Now we’re at 5.2% unemployment, which pales in comparison to the success of Trump’s economy but considering what we’ve gone through is nothing to complain about.
Rep. Hakeem Jeffries (D-NY) used the recovering economy to prove again that Democrats governing America are inveterate liars. In a nonsensical press release last Tuesday, the Chairman of the House Democratic Caucus assured us the joint infrastructure agreement and Build Back Better Act were on the way:
Why? Because President Biden promised that we were not going back to pre-pandemic normal, we were going to Build Back Better. Because prior to the pandemic, so many everyday Americans were struggling.47
A Biden promise of not going back to pre-pandemic normal sounds more like a threat. Why wouldn’t we want to go back to the economic prosperity and historic low unemployment America enjoyed while Trump was president? Hatching a plan to not go back to that pre-COVID prosperity is just as foolhardy as the president’s bright ideas on Afghanistan, the border, and ending the COVID pandemic by infuriating Americans with a vaccine mandate.
Despite what you will hear, the issue is not what Democrats promise to do for us. The real issue is what these lying, self-interested hacks will do for themselves. Build Back Better really means Build the Democrat Party and its massive list of socialist agenda items.
Here’s an idea for Jeffries, Schumer, Pelosi, Harris, and lying Joe Biden before they destroy the greatest economy in the world once and for all. Just do what Trump did. It worked. Just because you hate this man more than anything on the face of the earth is no reason to take out your anger on the American people’s future.
UPDATE October 2, 2021: Democrats create a Marxist class struggle and their lies finally catch up to them
Remember when Republicans had a chance to fix America’s health care system? After years of criticizing Obamacare they finally had a chance to live up to their words. The GOP went down in flames and followed up by losing the House.
Now it’s the Democrat Party’s turn. This is what going down in flames sounds like for Democrats:
Today, President Biden honored us with his first in-person visit to our Caucus. He received a hero’s welcome!48
No, this wasn’t from January and Biden is no hero. This was after Democrats made fools of themselves yesterday when their Marxist economic plan failed to pass. In their arrogance they flew too close to the sun and got scorched.
Not only is Biden unable to unite a country that he divided more than ever, he can’t even bring his own party together. Democrats allowed a freshman dimwit to take center stage to push a socialist agenda based on lies about a class struggle. The resulting agenda lurched so far from mainstream America that it even found room for anti-Semitism encouraged by the same dimwit and her SQUAD pals.
While Democrats accuse Republicans of trying to shut down the government,49 the rest of America is watching their party go to pieces over the best way to ruin the economy with unsustainable debt and spending. Their phony, manufactured class struggle proved inadequate to get the job done despite hilarious rhetoric from extreme progressives who call Biden’s socialist agenda “visionary.”50
Just because middle-class Americans don’t make a six-figure salary like the self-interested, anti-American liars on Capitol Hill doesn’t mean we are stupid. There is no Marxist class struggle in America other than the one Democrats created to trick voters into supporting the ruination of our country.
The class struggle hiding behind Biden’s socialist agenda exemplifies governing with lies. The good news is that he didn’t get away with it last week. The bad news is that one of the reasons was that his agenda still isn’t destructive enough to satisfy extremist Democrats.
