CNN fact check nails Biden on numerous lies and exaggerations during town hall event

CNN fact-checked President Joe Biden on numerous statements he made during a town hall event on their own network and found him wanting.  Hosted by CNN host Don Lemon, the president responded to questions from the audience at the town hall event Wednesday in Cincinnati, Ohio.
On Thursday, CNN refuted many of the claims Biden made during the event.

Coronavirus vaccination

Biden made contradictory statements about the efficacy of vaccination against the coronavirus event.  “If you’re vaccinated, you’re not going to be hospitalized, you’re not going to be in the ICU unit and you’re not going to die,” said Biden at one point.
Later, he added that even if vaccinated people were to become infected with the virus that they were “not likely to get sick.”  In a third statement, he assured the audience that “you’re not going to get COVID if you have these vaccinations.”
CNN noted that the second statement was the most accurate statement about the efficacy of vaccinations.


CNN noted that Biden dismissed a question about the increasing price of cars over inflation, saying, “The cost of an automobile, it’s kind of back to what it was before the pandemic.”  But that is not true, and prices for used and new automobiles have skyrocketed during Biden’s term.

Biden’s vaccination goal

Biden bumbled the numbers on what he initially promised to succeed in relation to the rate of the coronavirus vaccinations.
“Now, by the way, remember when I first got elected,” he said, “the issue was, well, I said I was going to do a million shots a week, and people said, ‘Biden can’t do that’ or ‘Biden team can’t do that.’ And it was 2 million.”   CNN pointed out that Biden had promised to meet the rate of a million vaccinations per day, not a million per week.      CNN reported that Biden was able to achieve another goal of 200 million vaccinations by 100 days, but the network neglected to note that this goal was made after Biden was ridiculed for having such an easily achievable previous goal.

How many is that?

Biden was confused about how many Americans would be affected by his proposal to end the practice of noncompete agreements. During the town hall he said, “You have over 600,000 people out there signing — 6 million people signing a — I better check the number…” But CNN noted that White House press secretary Jen Psaki has put the number at more than 30 million people, and another estimate used by the White House put it at between 36 to 60 million workers.
Biden also failed to remember how many Republicans signed on to a letter he was discussing and the facts on his own child tax credit bill, CNN reported.

This Dick Morris Lunch Alert!

A virus, probably genetically altered in a lab using transfection technology, was released on the world and used to shut down the economy, restrict liberty and freedom, and justify conducting a medical experiment on the public


Unethical Medical Experiments: How To Introduce Genetic Manipulation To The World

Dr. Robert Malone discussed his concerns about the mRNA vaccines in an interview with the Epoch times, and he discussed the risks involved in taking the mRNA vaccines on the Tucker Carlson show. Before Malone’s interview with the Epoch Times, that was posted on YouTube, there were dozens of articles on the Internet praising Dr. Malone as a genius for developing DNA/RNA transfection technology. However, after the interview, most of the articles disappeared along with the YouTube video and his Wikipedia page. Why did that happen?

mRNA vaccines are not vaccines—Using nucleic acids to alter cell function is more properly called gene therapy

Well, it happened because Dr. Malone questioned the ethics of using experimental RNA vaccines on an uninformed public. He also objected to fear mongering, shaming and using free food, drinks, gifts and money to coerce the public into taking an experimental drug. As a result, Dr. Malone went from a genius to a discredited kook in the blink of an eye, and it was all because he objected to the unethical practice of using an experimental technology on the public without “informed” consent.
Dr. Malone’s honesty about the use of experimental technology on the public was echoed on social media. That’s the primary reason why the establishment accused Facebook of spreading vaccine disinformation. Facebook failed to completely sensor what Dr. Malone revealed about the vaccines, and the socialists running America reacted by accusing Facebook of spreading disinformation. So what did Dr, Malone reveal about the vaccines that sent the establishment into a tizzy?
He revealed that mRNA vaccines are not vaccines. The process of using nucleic acids to alter cell function is more properly called gene therapy. That’s why Dr. Malone’s Wikipedia bio disappeared along with all the articles praising him for developing DNA/RNA transfection technology. Dr. Malone developed transfection technology in 1988, while working at the Salk Institute, and the covid mRNA vaccines are based on Dr. Malone’s transfection technology. So what exactly is transfection technology and what is it used for?

California court strikes down transgender pronoun law as First Amendment violation

California court strikes down transgender pronoun
law as First Amendment violation

– The Washington Times – Wednesday, July 21, 2021
A California appeals court has ruled that a state law requiring nursing home staff to refer to transgender residents by their preferred pronouns violates the First Amendment.  The court said the pronoun provision was a “content-based restriction on speech” that runs afoul of the Constitution because it compels nursing home staff to communicate a message they may not wish to convey.  “The pronoun provision at issue here tests the limits of the government’s authority to restrict pure speech that, while potentially offensive or harassing to the listener, does not necessarily create a hostile environment,” the court ruled this month.


Biden’s infrastructure bill blocked by Senate filibuster – Thank God for the Filibuster!

Biden’s infrastructure bill blocked by Senate filibuster

Senate Majority Leader Charles E. Schumer’s gamble on infrastructure failed on Wednesday,
handing the New York Democrat his first major legislative defeat since his party took control
of the chamber earlier this year. Published July 21, 2021

“The majority leader Schumer (D)tried to strong-arm Republicans, who have been out there
defending the deal publicly, to vote for it even though it was unfinished.”

Trees are certainly an excellent way to absorb the excess CO2 the environmental armageddonists whine about

Global Warming, Trees, and Environmental Racism

The global warming crowd could not get ordinary Americans to buy into their arrogant narrative that the globe is warming due to human activity such as industry, travel, car use, agriculture, breathing, flying, artificial lakes; so, they turned the Armageddon narrative into a profitable leftist climate change industry that has many allies among academics, public school teachers, the mainstream media, and crony corporatism. Who can deny that the climate changes and has done so for thousands of years?
It is not just the environmental justice the Paris accord and its previous U.N. Agenda 2030 goals, versions of controlling how people live and make a living, every aspect, no matter how insignificantly small. The narrative is now tied, like everything else the left says and does, to one’s skin color. Apparently, the climate and how temperatures affect Mother Earth due to solar flares, water currents around the earth, and volcanic oceanic eruptions above and below earth are now caused by environmental racism>.

Shade, the existence or non-existence of trees becomes “environmental racism”, a measure of “privilege” is hard to understand without impossible mental gymnastics

The left is quite poetic with its definitions, creatively pulling out of the proverbial magician hat amazingly artistic constructs that do not exist. They contort themselves verbally into impossible pretzeled scenarios that bear no resemblance to reality or common sense.  Stating that “science tells us unequivocally that the world is getting hotter: the past six years have been the warmest on record,” National Geographic devoted its July 2021 cover to “Beating the heat.” The cover claims that “wealthy areas are shady and cool,” but “the tree canopy decreases, and temperatures rise as you drive south,” at least in Los Angeles. (One Nation, Under Heat and Shade>)
The conclusion on the cover is, “on a warming planet, this divides between rich and poor leaves many at risk.” There is no denying that shade lowers temperatures, but how shade and the existence or non-existence of trees becomes “environmental racism”, and a measure of “privilege” is hard to understand without impossible mental gymnastics.  The climate change alarmist narrative is that poor neighborhoods have less trees and are five degrees hotter than rich neighborhoods. I have seen areas in western cities quite devoid of trees and extremely hot, yet the residents did not seem to be poor at all.  All inhabitants, rich or poor, white, or black, suffered the same in the summertime heat. It is nobody’s fault that vast flat prairies have fewer trees or that urban neighborhoods did not bother to plant any.
“For most of the past 10,000 years, global average temperature has remained relatively stable and low compared to earlier hothouse conditions in our planet’s history.” What’s the hottest Earth has been “lately”? | NOAA Climate.gov



Cuban Refugees Blocked by Democrats as Future GOP Voters

Understand Joe Biden only wants southern border immigrants because they will vote Democrat. So, Cubans are “blockaded” because they will vote Republican. End of story. This in the midst of unprecedented protests in 20 Cuban cities where untold thousands will be arrested and even murdered for demanding freedom. So, there goes your heartfelt theory that Democrats “love” embattled, endangered, and enfeebled illegals, beaten down by thugs or corrupt governments  and welcome them all out of Christian agape`of humanity.


Cubans, as actual survivors of a Marxist state, are future Republicans

Biden and Pelosi claim their absolute commitment to all southern border crossers is done for “humanitarianism.” But now we see this is an absolute lie, thanks to Cuba, like everything else about the Biden Admin, which stated Cubans trying to leave their murderous state will be rejected. Yet, they are more at risk than any Central American or Mexican entrant. Instead, the real reason is because Marxist Dems understand southern entries are all future Democrats. But Cubans, as actual survivors of a Marxist state, are future Republicans. Mystery solved!!
It’s just only about the votes, folks—to try and topple Texas, Arizona, and especially Florida. And if you can’t understand that, you might want to reread The Prince, and understand how power is cultured, gathered and amalgamated. Sellout fraud Alejandro Mayorkas, Head of Homeland Security, born in Havana, warned Cubans not to flee despite knowing first-hand the terrible crisis his own people are in. “Allow me to be clear: If you take to the sea, you will not come to the United States. If individuals make, establish a well-founded fear of persecution or torture, they are referred to third countries for resettlement,they will not enter the United States.” They will be returned to Cuba!! Which begs the question: If this is straightforward American law, why in the name of Zeus is it being completely abandoned and contravened from Texas to California?
If you love Joe Biden, aka shuffling First Zombie in Chief, you must understand his mind hopped a freight train out of town ages ago. If you doubt this, then watch as Joe is asked a simple, apparently sinister question and then fumbles like a vampire in a sudden flash of sunlight for a pocket card to read from. He’s aghast. So, the question is—Who is making this myriad of ill-advised and simply catastrophic decisions? Simply blocking communist escapees from Cuba alone exposes the entire administration as a bunch of heartless political robots in search of unlimited power.


Fox repeatedly includes this line: ‘Trump, continuing to allege widespread voting fraud without evidence’

When it Comes To Election 2020 Reporting, Fox News is Fake News

In 2020 Election chicanery, Fox News’ Bret Baier is up at bat for a third consecutive time.
“Earlier today FOX News host Bret Baier downplayed the EXPLOSIVE revelations from Thursday’s Arizona Senate audit update.(Gateway Pundit, July 17, 2021)
“On Thursday the Arizona Senate held a hearing on the ongoing Maricopa County forensic audit.
“The audit team announced there were 74,000 ballots that were received and included in the 2020 Election in Maricopa County than were mailed out.”
More than any other major media outlet—including even CNN and MSNBC—it was Fox News who tossed a destructive wrecking ball at the dubious outcome of Election 2020.  Lest we forget: On Election Night, Fox News’ Bret Baier was the first to declare Arizona for Biden—even when voting was still ongoing. And on the following Saturday, Fox News again led the field announcing that Biden was now declared the winner, deeming Biden as ‘President-elect’.
How’s that for stealing a presidential election?
Not all that Fox does against the 74 million—and still counting—voters who cast votes for President Donald J. Trump is as clearly overt. In most stories about the allegedly rigged 2020 election, Fox repeatedly includes this line:
‘Trump, continuing to allege widespread voting fraud without evidence.’
Some would call this a type of Trump Derangement Syndrome”chipping away” in order to squatting on the Truth.
Back to The Gateway Pundit:

“The Cyber Ninjas CEO Doug Logan reported this along with other issues already identified from their investigation“They found 74,243 mail-in ballots with NO clear record of them ever being sent!

“The audit team also announced that ballots were counted that WERE NOT on the proper paper stock and WERE NOT in proper printing alignment.
Other ballots were marked with Sharpie pens that bled through the paper.  “According to elections expert Jovan Pulitzer what was presented today was just the appetizer before the main course to come!


Chuck Schumer Threatens To Cancel August Recess

Chuck Schumer Threatens To August Recess Unless He Gets What He Wants

(RepublicanInformer.com)- The Congressional calendar is posing a bit of a problem for President Biden’s dream of increasing the national debt with so-called “infrastructure” spending. As the days of July tick by without a vote in the Senate, the August recess looms nearer.  So Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer has decided to play a little hardball with the US Senate – pass the infrastructure bills or no August recess for you!
This is the legislative version of “No TV until you do your homework!” And for lawmakers, the threat to take away their recess might be an effective weapon.  After all, recess from Congress is the time when lobbyists and other interests groups send lawmakers on paid junkets to places like Qatar or the Bahamas or other fancy destinations. What Senator wants to give that up?
Last Friday, Schumer sent a letter to members of the Senate telling them they should prepare to work hard to pass the infrastructure bills – long nights, weekends. And of course, Schumer told them he was willing to cancel the August recess if need be.

‘I fought for Cuba, they didn’t’ – Trump.

‘I fought for Cuba, they didn’t’: Trump nails Biden in a fiery statement about uprising against communist regime

Former President Donald Trump fired off a scorching statement criticizing the Biden administration for not doing enough to support the popular uprising against the communist regime in Cuba.
“The proud people of Cuba are desperate to be free from the iron boot heel of the Island’s Communist regime. These incredible warriors for freedom risk everything to take to the streets in their quest for freedom,” Trump said in a statement.
“The Biden Administration’s refusal to forcefully condemn Communism and the Cuban Communist Regime is a national travesty. The Biden Administration’s ludicrous suggestion that the Cubans are protesting government mismanagement — not brutal Communist oppression — is an insult to every Cuban patriot who has suffered, been imprisoned, or died in pursuit of freedom,” he continued.
Biden had been criticized for a lukewarm statement from State Department spokesman Ned Price citing the “mismanagement” in Cuba and signaling support for the people speaking out against oppression.
“Today’s Democrat Party is so far left they can’t even take a stand against violent Communism. Many are Communists themselves!” Trump continued in his statement.
“The Biden Administration is squandering a historic opportunity to stand for freedom and human rights in our home region. The Biden Administration is betraying the freedom-loving people of Cuba,” he added. “I fought for Cuba, they didn’t.”

What is DACA?

“While the court’s order does not now affect current DACA recipients, this decision nonetheless relegates hundreds of thousands of young immigrants to an uncertain future,” Biden said in a statement on Saturday.
The president also said the Department of Homeland Security plans to issue a proposed rule on DACA “in the near future” and DHS Secretary Mayorkas echoed that in a statement, saying that in addition to continuing to process DACA renewal applications, the department plans to “preserve and fortify DACA” with more policy changes.
The Friday ruling marks a significant blow to the Obama-era approach that shielded young people brought to the country illegally from deportation.

U.S. District Court Judge Andrew Hanen sided with a group of nine states led by Texas and concluded that the creation of the DACA program violated federal administrative law. Hanen emphasized in his decision that his ruling does not compel immigration authorities to arrest and deport recipients, but it does make them eligible.
With the “greatest urgency,” Biden on Saturday also renewed his call for Congress to create a pathway to citizenship for the approximately 650,000 people who hold DACA status by passing the American Dream and Promise Act, possibly even through the reconciliation process, which Democrats are currently working on to achieve the president’s “human infrastructure” priorities.

Agriculture Commissioner Nikki Fried announced Tuesday she is seeking the party’s nomination for governor, setting herself up for a potential battle with her current boss, Gov. Ron DeSantis.

“I’m here to break the rigged system in Florida,” Fried said in a video posted to her Twitter. “It’s corrupt. It’s anti-democratic. And it’s time for something new.”

A native of Miami with three degrees from the University of Florida, Fried spent nearly a decade as a lawyer before becoming a lobbyist for several groups – including the marijuana industry, Walt Disney World and later the Broward County School Board.

In 2018, Fried narrowly won and became the first Democrat to hold a statewide office since 2011. She has been a vocal supporter of gun control legislation

Was January 6th a calculated set-up by the Democrats, DOJ, Intelligence, Judiciary & FBI knowing radical groups were planning to be there.?

This is article from the American Thinker is one of best I’ve read about the lies and tyrannical actions by the Dept of In-Justice related to the Jan. 9th rally/  This legal assembly in DC by over 500,000 who peacefully demonstrated in protest of the stolen election and in support of POTUS Trump were fully within their 1st Amendment rights.  This was not an “armed insurrection” and the people arrested should not be held without Due Process under the 5th Amendment.  Their treatment is appalling.   Please open this link and read:

So Much Evidence that January 6, 2021 was a Calculated Set-Up

Political persecution and isolation of vast swaths of the citizenry by the Justice Department, the Intelligence Community, and the Judiciary in the wake of the January 6, 2021, Capitol incursion should bring a chill down the spine of every American. This same troika, but with different nomenclature, was mobilized by 20th Century despots to eliminate their political enemies and establish a police state.

(I attended the January 6, 2021 rally at the U.S. Capitol and observed first-hand what the media and the Democrats have falsely and with malice claimed was an “armed insurrection.”)
The initial step in consolidating power is to incessantly demonize as enemies of the state one’s political opponents.  The second is to isolate and delegitimize them by either staging or so exaggerating an incident that any and all steps to quash them are acceptable in order to “save the nation.”  Therefore, the question is: was January 6th pre-planned by legitimate Trump supporters, was it spontaneous or was it a calculated set-up?



Regulations setting a minimum age of 21 for handgun purchases from licensed dealers violates the Second American rights of those citizens.

A federal appeals court ruled Tuesday that regulations setting a minimum age of 21 for handgun purchases from licensed dealers violates the Second American rights of those citizens.
The three-judge panel in the 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals delivered the ruling in a split vote 2-1, with an appointee of former President Donald Trump writing the majority opinion, arguing the laws relegated “either the Second Amendment or 18- to 20-year-olds to a second-class status,” CNN reported.
“Looking through this historical lens to the text and structure of the Constitution reveals that 18- to 20-year-olds have Second Amendment rights,” Judge Julius N. Richardson wrote. “Virtually every other constitutional right applies whatever the age. And the Second Amendment is no different.”
