UPDATE March 23, 2022:
Democrats Use Ukraine Tragedy to Demand We Open the Immigration Floodgates.
Liberal lawmakers compare humanitarian catastrophe in Ukraine to illegal migration to America. They are not the same thing and to suggest they are is another Democrat Party lie.
The Trump administration enacted Title 42 early in the COVID pandemic to facilitate the removal of illegals. The goal was to protect Americans. Surprisingly, the Biden administration kept Title 42 in place. Not surprisingly, Democrats were unhappy about it:
Using the pandemic as an excuse to keep implementing the Trump Title 42 policy—that has prevented millions of asylum seekers from refuge—must end.128
Millions?? Democrats rarely have a problem coming up with excuses to flood our country with illegal foreign nationals. Their false narrative revolves around America’s values, racism, and xenophobia:
We must work to end xenophobic policies from the prior administration, based on hate and fear, that do not reflect our American values.129
One day after these remarks from the Congressional Hispanic Caucus the Biden administration announced it would stop deporting unaccompanied minors under Title 42. In response, the CHC demanded the complete abolition of the policy.130
We expect this sort of liberal, America be damned approach to immigration politics. Nevertheless, there are limits to what we as American should tolerate. CHC Chair Raul Ruiz (D-CA) crossed the line when he compared the plight of the Ukrainian people to advantage the migrants showing up unbidden at our border:
Whether fleeing for your life from Putin’s army in Ukraine, or drug cartels and gangs in Central America, all refugees must have the opportunity to seek asylum without fear of being expelled back to the exact dangers from which they fled.131
There is a big difference between shelling innocent civilians and invading our Southwest border because Joe Biden is president and the gates are wide open. Ruiz didn’t mention the migrants brought here by cartels instead of fleeing from them, the violent criminals who return after being deported, or the gangs transplanted from Central America to our homeland. This is about opportunism, not facts or even reason, and a shameful example of how human tragedy is used for political gain.
Ruiz isn’t the only politician using Ukraine’s humanitarian catastrophe to push Democrats’ immigration agenda. Squad Member Ayanna Pressley (D-MA) joined Rep. Mondaire Jones (D-NY) in a letter to DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas protesting the removal of Haitian migrants. They cited Biden’s “recent suspension of deportation flights to Ukraine:”
We write with a request as simple as it is urgent: Stop deporting and expelling people to Haiti. Now,” Reps. Pressley and Jones wrote. “Today, we reiterate our insistence that you impose a moratorium on deportations to Haiti, respect Haitians’ legal and human right to asylum by ending Title 42 expulsions, and reverse the unjust deportations to Haiti that have already occurred.132
It would be a waste of time to point out that it’s too dangerous to fly into Ukraine. Democrats will say and do anything they can to ensure unfettered access to America for anyone who wants it. Even so, nothing excuses the comparison to Ukraine. When Russian missiles start flying in Central America they can talk about refugees. Until then, no one should be drawing parallels between the enormous loss of life in this conflict and the deaths yet to come with the migrants showing up at America’s gate with their hands out. There is no comparison.
UPDATE March 29, 2022:
Biden fronts for Democrat Party liars with 2023 budget lies.
Billionaires aren’t the enemy and clean energy won’t arrive in time to save the middle class from Biden’s price hikes.
After a weekend of correcting presidential misstatements and watching the poll numbers sink the White House chose yesterday to let President Biden loose again and unveil the Democrat Party’s plan for the FY 2023 Budget. We’re back on familiar turf now. Democrats have an age-old excuse for why their reckless economic policies hurt voters foolish enough to believe their lies and put them in office: the rich don’t pay enough taxes:
And the wealthy and corporations will finally begin to pay their fair share. For most Americans, the last few years were very hard, stretching them to the breaking point. But billionaires and large corporations got richer than ever. Right now, billionaires pay an average rate of 8 percent on their total income. Eight percent — that’s the average they pay.133
Democrats’ progressive agenda helped us reach that breaking point but the truth is not what pushing massive new spending is about. The president used “tax” or “taxes” 16 times yesterday in a speech replete with the kind of misstatements and outright lies we’ve come to expect from his administration:
Well, the budget I’m releasing today sends a clear message to the American people that we — what we value. First, fiscal responsibility. Second, safety and security. And thirdly, the inv- — (clears throat) — excuse me — the investments needed to build a better America.134
Faithful Biden lap dog Nancy Pelosi echoed the same false fiscal responsibility claim, as if the massive inflation punishing Americans doesn’t exist:
At the same time, the Biden budget reflects Democrats’ continued commitment to fiscal responsibility. Our economic strategy has put the nation on track to slash the deficit by an historic $1.3 trillion this year, and this proposal aims to build on this progress by further reducing the deficit by more than $1 trillion over the next decade.135
Perhaps the shrinking percentage of faithful, deluded Democrat voters who are either wealthy or don’t eat, drive, or buy anything believes this. The rest of us know better, especially when Biden resorts to blaming Trump for what his economic policies have done to the American people:
The first value is fiscal responsibility. The previous administration, as you all know, ran up record budget deficits. In fact, the deficit went up every year under my predecessor. My administration is turning that around.136
Biden mentioned energy, but he never talked about gas prices or domestic production because of his complete subservience to radical climate progressives. Instead, we got more false promises about a green energy Shangri la. He offered comfort to families forced to decide between eating and filling their tank with sky-high gasoline:
My budget lowers family energy costs with tax credits to help people make their homes more efficient, research and development to broaden the reach of solar and build a clean energy future.137
Appropriately, the president concluded with the biggest lie of all:
So I look forward to working with members of Congress — Democrats, Republicans, and independents — to deliver this budget and keep delivering for the American people.138
Let’s make that two lies. First, this will be a non-starter with Republicans. Democrats, White House bureaucrats, and anyone who reads the news knows it and so do Biden and Pelosi.
Second and much more offensive, Biden and the Democrats have already delivered for the American people. They gave us soaring prices on essentials like food and gas, soaring crime rates, soaring illegal immigration, and massive spending that brought damaging, record inflation. To soothe the financial anguish we got yesterday’s pack of lies and the same enemy the party always targets when their recklessness hurts the American people.
As usual, Democrats’ solution to fix the economic wreckage they cause is to spend even more. The better fix is to vote these lying left wing hacks out of office as soon as possible.
UPDATE April 1, 2022: Gender radicals take you for a fool.
Do your genitals lie like Democrats?
When the left claimed with a straight face that our genitals are irrelevant to our gender it was pretty clear we were being taken for fools. A minority of screamers, shouters, threateners, and cancel culture geeks have spent the entirety of the Biden administration demanding that Americans swallow their nonsense about how to evade biology by force of law, if necessary.
In better times the verbal gender freak show that we’re expected to accept as normal would at best be a sideshow attraction for the terminally bored. Unfortunately for the vast majority of Americans who are sane, level-headed, and trust what their chromosomes and genitalia have to say, our government has endorsed the left’s gender fringe and their accompanying cultural insanity.
When the Biden administration began to refer to mothers as “birthing people” we should have taken to the streets on behalf of women who were being neutered for liberal political gain. Perhaps this was a test to see how many of us were paying attention and how many would protest against the left’s determination to use our union-controlled schools to groom children for whatever alternate lifestyle it deems most politically useful at the moment.
Creating victims to match an agenda you’ve already decided on is misleading and deceitful.
Whether it’s preferred pronoun nonsense, corporate wokeness like the battle being waged between Disney and Florida Governor Ron DeSantis over the state’s parental rights bill, or incremental efforts like Rep. Eleanor Holmes Norton’s (D-DC) bill to strip the requirement of gender identification from the Real ID Act in the name of equality,139 we can only hope that Americans see this for what it is. Democrats like victims, the more the better. Since they have run the gamut of victimized Americans created for the benefit of their party, more need to be created:
At a time when millions of transgender Americans are under attack by violence, hateful rhetoric and discriminatory legislation, it is crucial that we — as a nation — witness, recognize and celebrate the resilience of the transgender community in the United States and around the globe,” said Congresswoman Marie Newman.140
Millions? Rep. Newman doesn’t cite her source. For now we’ll have to give her the benefit of the doubt.
[Author’s note April 2, 2022: current estimates place the U.S. transgender population at 1.5 million.141]
There is a reason this sounds familiar. Just swap out “transgender Americans” with “black Americans,” “Asian Americans,” “Latino Americans,” “LGBTQ Americans,” or even “women” when women still existed. This is fill in the blank victimhood politics that fits the needs of a Democrat Party not known for its veracity. Only a fool would accept it at face value.
UPDATE April 8, 2022:
Governing Democrats desperately want you to believe their newest, most outrageous lie yet: Biden has done an incredible job.
If you want incontrovertible proof that Democrats despise the people they trick into voting for their lies, look no further than their new strategy to deflect the blowback from Biden and Harris’ abysmal poll numbers. In a House Democratic Caucus press release Rep. Hakeem Jeffries (D-NY) insists:
President Biden is laying the foundation for an incredible economic turnaround.142
Future tense is popular with a party that seems to be going out of its way to alienate the American people. For those holdouts who actually believe that better times are ahead, Jeffries makes his claim even more outrageous:
President Biden has done an incredibly good job during his time in office under very difficult circumstances, helping America work its way through this once-in-a-century COVID-19 pandemic, uniting the free world in support of Ukraine and against Russian aggression and laying the foundation for an incredible economic turnaround.143
None of these things true. Not one. The president couldn’t even manage to supply COVID tests in time for the last surge. Monoclonal antibodies are in short supply as we await the next. Instead of Operation War Speed II, Americans get vaccine orthodoxy and an FDA-approved, equity-based racist distribution scheme for treatments.
Biden dragged his feet on supplying Ukraine for a war that would likely never have happened if America had a strong, coherent leader. At least party members have been quiet about our retreat from Afghanistan though they probably consider that catastrophe a historic success, too.
The economic turnaround is coming?
No, Biden’s stunning economic turnaround isn’t coming. The White House has worked overtime to impair America’s post-pandemic economic resurgence for the sake of Democrats’ activist climate agenda. The only way the cost of living is going to come down is if Democrats bribe their base with handouts paid for by others. This is not resurgence. It’s just more lies like this:
This is a tremendous foundation for the American people. That doesn’t just happen automatically, doesn’t just happen magically.144
Magical thinking does happen automatically for Democrat politicians who are so determined to evade responsibility for raising gas prices while they figure out a way to make electric cars affordable for working and middle class families that they forget the importance of believability:
We’re going to make sure that the full story is told, both as it relates to Putin’s price hike, connected to gas prices, as well as some of the price gouging that is taking place this week.145
Just in case the Vladimir Putin gas price hike isn’t enough to convince you to cast your vote for the radical left, there is always January 6:
If the country does not commit to investigating and pursuing accountability for those responsible, the court fears that January 6 will repeat itself.146
Expect the results of Pelosi’s Kangaroo Court to be announced in 6-7 months, close enough to midterms that there won’t be enough time to investigate whatever election-ready conclusions the tribunal issues. Meanwhile, Democrats need to come up with a few more lies to explain their involvement in spreading the Trump-Russia hoax. They also need to circle the wagons to bury the growing Hunter Biden scandal their media deep-sixed during the election that put Joe in office. I don’t think blaming their problems on Russian disinformation is going to work this time, but we’ll see. Not telling the truth is something the Democrat Party excels at.
UPDATE April 17, 2022:
Cut the crap, Kamala. We already know how to address illegal migration and the root causes aren’t the problem.
How long does Vice President Harris think she can maintain her ridiculous charade about the root causes of migration to America? As long as she thinks we believe it. She just dished up more nonsense about creating jobs in Central America to fix our illegal immigration problem:
The Vice President provided an update on progress in implementation of the Administration’s Root Causes Strategy, including marshalling private sector investment in the region through the Vice President’s “Call to Action,” which has generated more than $1.2 billion in private sector commitments to create new jobs and opportunities for people in the region.147
Making life better in Central America can wait until she’s finished protecting the U.S. border. No matter how much Harris and Biden look down on America, neither can possibly be so dense as to think that investing in Central America is going create jobs that are a better option than coming to a country that welcomes illegals with open arms, guarantees the same minimum wage paid to citizens, offers free transportation, and hands out free cell phones.
They are by no means that dense. They think we are.
Nevertheless, Harris declares that the administration’s plan for dealing with the root causes of migration is paramount:
The strength and security of the United States depends on the implementation of strategies like this one.148
No, the strength and security of the United States depends on leaders who make these things a priority above all others. The Biden administration could have mandated that we finish Trump’s wall. Instead, Biden cancelled wall project contracts. They could have refused to admit migrants into the U.S. Instead, our government hands them cell phones and expects us to believe that illegals will keep them so they can be tracked. The White House could have hired more Border Patrol agents, used the military, and done whatever was necessary to protect Americans and the sovereignty of our borders. The Biden administration chose not to. Instead, we’re supposed to believe that the answer is making life in Central America just as appealing as life in America.
We know that Biden and Harris think Americans are stupid. They must believe that migrants are stupid, too. The fact that they are coming here in droves proves otherwise.

Paul Tollefson says
You’re not wrong only it will take more than just a majority. Unfortunately most Republicans are so afraid that they won’t stand up to the lying oppressive Democratic regime. This is half of the problem. The other half of the problem is that none of the political individuals Republican and Democrat alike are willing to give up their ability to conduct insider trading based on knowledge that they receive from different committees. Thank you for listening I wish that my thoughts were not the truth.
Bob Prokop says
I wish you were wrong too, Paul, but your comments are spot on. The willingness of the GOP to bend to the will of the Democrat Party is infuriating, including their support of the last omnibus spending package. Democrats know better.
As far as insider trading is concerned, let’s relegate that to the same list as term limits and an earmark ban. The difference between Republicans and Democrats is a lot less than the difference between politicians from either party and the American people. Both know where their money comes from.
Thanks for reading and offering your thoughts.
Michael Woods says
What good does it do to point out democrat lies. The GOP won’t do anything about it.
Bob Prokop says
I don’t disagree, Michael. They will hold hearings. They will issue a report. Nothing will come of it because they don’t have the political might and too many in the party don’t want to rock the boat that keeps lawmakers fat and happy.
Faye Witt says
Democrats are the biggest damn liars that ever lived or at least one of the biggest liars but anyway they are big time liars who don’t the meaning of the word truth and honesty, they think we’re fools who believe their lies but not all of us are foolishly enough to believe their lies and they like to feed us a heaping load of their bullshit lies and put blame on anyone and anything that they can put blame on cause that trash isn’t going to take blame for nothing cause it’s easier to put blame on someone else or something else but their favorite person to put blame on is Trump and he’s always been their favorite person to pick on, it isn’t bad enough that they used Covid-19 to do that stupid mail in ballot thing all so they can steal the election away from Trump but then they keep right on with their bullshit cause I think they feel threatened by Trump and I think they always have felt threatened by him especially now, I think they’re scared that Trump might run again in the 2024 election and win and get back in office and they sure don’t want that and I hope Trump does run again and wins because this country needs him back as President and I don’t give a damn what the birdbrains out there think cause they’re no damn better than the trash out there, doing the damage to America cause they support them and vote for them and when they do that, that makes them no better than they are cause they support the garbage doing the damage and to me that’s like a slap in the face cause to me when you support them, it’s like you support anything and everything they do, good or bad so I say” WAKE UP, AMERICA!
Bob Prokop says
Wow! Faye, I think you covered it. I haven’t decided whether they lie because they think we’re too dumb to see through what they say, or because they don’t care what we think. Probably both. As far as Trump is concerned, I wholeheartedly agree. Democrats and sadly, many Republicans are terrified of a leader who won’t play their game of stringing us along, hurting Americans in the process, and doing absolutely nothing to make our country better. Trump got things done and Washington still hates him for showing how worthless and self-interested our elected officials are. The best way for him to end their hate is to be reelected. Afterwards he can’t run again and this will go away.
Paul Tollefson says
You’re absolutely right Faye. I live in Washington State where we do mail in voting all the time I am absolutely positive that Washington State enacted disability without the vote of the people so that the Democratic party that enacted it could continually steal the elections year after year after year trying to find something Democrats need to be removed their party should be disbanded based on their willingness to sell our country to foreign interest Joe Biden has proven that but yet the mainline media doesn’t seem to be too interested in checking into it that’s because they know it’s the truth. I don’t
When Dems say the violence is part of their agenda. They are telling the truth. They plan on using as much violence to make legal Americans afraid to stand up to them
Bob Prokop says
Exactly right, Mea. All it takes is a liberal dog whistle to get the violent, peaceful protests started. As long as Democrats control Homeland Security, the Justice Department, and the FBI, left-wing domestic terrorists have nothing to worry about.
THE LOYAL DROOLING ASS-KISSERS WILL BELIEVE ANY LIE UTTERED BY A REPUBLICAN.
Bob Prokop says
A Republican does anything wrong its all over ythe news even if it is all lies like with Trump this election era. A democratic lies daily and its published as gosphel!! There is no news without truth and the democratic party would self destruct if they had to tell one iota of truth as they are 100% liars, cowards, cheats and thieves!!!
Bob Prokop says
Spot on, antiobama. There is no better proof than their new Inflation Reduction Act. Democrats are so arrogant that they don’t even try to hide the fact that they lied to Americans about the purpose of this bill or what it will accomplish. As you rightly point out, when they lie it’s gospel and anyone who reveals the truth will be denounced and cancelled by Big Tech and their complicit media.
There is no news without truth and the democratic party would self destruct if they had to tell one iota of truth as they are 100% liars, cowards, cheats and thieves!!!
Your mama says
You’ve got it exactly backwards. Republicans are the lying bullies. Period. The end. Idiot.
Bob Prokop says
Difficult to do without a congressional majority, but with any luck after midterms next year there will be plenty of Republican bullying to make up for the lunacy we’ve suffered from the left.
Thanks for reading, even if I am an idiot.
your one of the un-educated people, could be receiving monies from the SATAN children in washington dc, in other words THE STEALING & LAUNDERING LAIRS CALLED democrats! The above voting for lairs – when TRUTH Meets them in Face- they only know to say bad things bout the REPUBLICANS, more than likely you don’t have a profession other than waiting for the free deposit.
IN REALITY GET YOURSELF SAVED THROUGH JESUS CHRIST, NOT ala he’s SATAN in TRUTH!
Nope! Nice try though. The “h” in democrat stands for honesty. Democrats are allergic to facts and think with their asses! No brains at all! Go f*** yourself democrats!
